Jens Alfke on Writing Mac Apps With Ruby and Python

From the comments on Daniel Jalkut’s aforelinked “C Is the New Assembly”:

One problem I suspect will bite people using scripting-language bridges is the lack of type checking. Yes, I’ve read all the propaganda about “duck typing” and how the lack of type checking makes you more Agile. For small quickie bits of code, I tend to agree. However, in a full app, type errors will bite you in the ass. A lot.
