Notes about type systems in popular languages

2016/06/09

I’ve been kind of out of my comfort zone last 3 weeks, and was trying to use as many new languages and technologies as possible.

I’ve used C++, JavaScript, React, PHP and Hack to name a few, and I’ve noticed really cool thing - many popular programming languages are moving towards mixing best of static and dynamic typing.

And it looks like all big companies are using this stuff extensively! Isn’t it awesome? After mainly using Go for last year, I’m super excited seeng how dynamically typed languages become safer with type hints, and how C++ brings convenience and ease of dynamic typing to its users.
