> In summary:
> In a dynamically typed language you write (a lot) less code for a shorter program that is easier and faster to write and debug, which gives you more time to think about what you are doing, resulting in more reliable programs.
> Static typing catches only a (very) small amount of typing errors, that are just as easy to handle as dynamic typing exceptions, but they are a bit faster.
