Python is (arguably) the most used dynamically typed language. Adherents to the statically typed philosophy generally abhor the whole dynamic language thing and are touting Go and D as the replacement for C and the languages all Python programmers should switch to. Conversely Python folks are happy with Python and see no need for the constraints of type that Go and D insist upon – amongst other serious restrictions.
In this session I will probe into some of the issues around this area, and possibly some other things as well.
I predict that predictions will be made.
