> The author is highly probably on the static typing camp.

First and foremost, i don't think dividing people into these clear-cut "camps" is good for this discussion (and probably for most discussions too...).

Second, i very much doubt that the author is a purist of static typing, or even a strong proponent of it. He has a series of programming screencasts called Destroy All Software, and in most the episodes i've seen he uses Ruby, Bash or Python. So, unless he has dramatically changed his style since then, i don't think he has any problems using dynamically typed languages.

Sure, I will edit that sentence out.
