Lecture by Steve Yegge for the Stanford University Computer Systems Colloquium (EE380).
Dynamically typed programming languages such as Perl, Python and Ruby have been gradually gaining popularity and momentum for the past fifteen years. However, dynamic languages are also arguably the biggest source of controversy in the industry. In this talk, Steve Yegge debunks some of the issues considered central to the debate, and then shares some novel techniques people are using to produce static-quality tools and performance in dynamic languages.

In this course, Stanford University gives 22 video lectures on the Computer Systems Laboratory Colloquium. This course features weekly speakers on current research and developments in computer systems. Topics touch upon all aspects of computer science and engineering including logic design, computer organization and architecture, software engineering, computer applications, public policy, and the social, business, and financial implications of technology. Frequently the Colloquium provides the first public forum for discussion of new products, discoveries, or ideas. This playlist consists of seminar speakers recorded during the 2007-2008 academic year.
The original name of this course is: Computer Systems Laboratory Colloquium (2007-2008).
