Golang is a rising star in the large family of programming and it is strongly and statically typed.
Twenty years ago there was the sunrise of dynamically typed languages, like Perl, PHP, Ruby. Today my impression is, that the pendulum swings back. Is my impression right?
And if! What may be the reason? My perspective is limited. I have the theory, that the major reason is in modern IDE. Having type informations at hand they can quickly deliver a large amount of information and give a rich assistance in typing code. I think this outweighs the amount of typing spared by using dynamic typing.
What do you think? Are dynamic languages like Perl or Ruby declining? How do you explain the development?
I am curious to read your views upon this matters.
