Matt does not like dynamic languages

Even though his attempt at ridicule is clearly done with a humorous twist, he has some valid points – there does indeed seem to be some kind of a hype when it comes to dynamic languages these days. Now, don’t get me wrong, the freedom that a dynamic language can provide can at times be extremely empowering and productive (not to mention fun!), but for our current development project, I praise myself lucky that we went with a statically typed language (C#) every time I have to do a major refactoring, which happens more often than you might think…

Still, we are not totally without dynamics <g>. Some bits of the project are actually being written in IronPython, more on that later (maybe).
