a good read on understanding the cost/value proposition of static typing
@yogthos Good read! I love this part: "This is an intersting bit of trade-off: the higher abstraction you use (and therefore the fewer assumptions you make), the more general you make your code and the more difficult it is to reason about it without context."
@jeff_terrell I really liked his non-ideological approach to discussing the trade offs between static and dynamic approaches. We need more discussion like that about the topic.
