Strong Typing vs Strong Testing

Bruce Eckel's MindView, Inc: 5-2-03 Strong Typing vs. Strong Testing

In recent years my primary interest has become programmer productivity. Programmer cycles are expensive, CPU cycles are cheap, and I believe that we should no longer pay for the latter with the former.

Ahh, Python: my new love affair. So easy to say what I want to say in that language. No long compilation steps. Easy to move from idea to code to execution. My vote for most productive language. Ruby is a close second, just doesn't have the mindshare yet.
