|A few years back, mainstream statically typed languages were more verbose than Python or Ruby. But today, I find that I can make F# or even C# code (insert other lang here) as concise as any dynamically typed language.|
And on the plus side, you get all the benefits of compiler type checking, better IDE support, and great refactoring support.
What are your reasons for choosing a dynamic language?
