Julia is a new dynamically-typed language for technical computing. While it uses types for many things, type checking is not one of them. TypeCheck.jl is a Julia package for when you want static type checking; it collects static-analysis functions that look for common problems in your code: problems that can cause run-time errors or reduced efficiency. TypeCheck.jl's type analysis uses the compiler's type-inference, so it's never out of sync with how your code is being compiled.
