The struggle is real

I hate dynamic typing and everything that's similar to it, i.e.:

  1. K8 yaml files with no schema.
  2. Javascript libraries with mysterious callbacks and parameters.
  3. Magical annotations and those with Stringly typed, optional params.

All of the above embody code that's shorter to write, but insurmountably harder to debug, reference, and often impossible to test without re-running or re-starting entire processes.

This becomes unimaginably inconvenient when processes encompass the deployment of distributed infrastructure, immensely disparate technologies, idempotent state, networking rules, race-conditions, and expensive ass time on AWS and GCP.

Please. Just. Stop.
