I found Idris pretty easy to get started with - that's part of it's goal, making dependent types easier to get started with. From there I think it would be easier to go to Agda or Coq, but I haven't explored much there myself.



+1 for Idris. The tutorials were pretty solid for it too when I tried it, and the mailing list was very helpful when I had questions [1]. There's even a WIP book! [2]

Their main docs are pretty good too: http://docs.idris-lang.org


Thanks. I've started with the tutorials but have yet to see an example that convinces me it's worth all the pain. I'll carry on a little further, though.

EDIT: the pain of such a strict language, not necessarily idris in particular.
