5. Dynamic Programming

Both static typing and dynamic typing have their advantages. Dynamic typing can provide for quicker development times and easier interoperability with dissimilar systems. Static typing enables the compiler to find classes of errors. Because the compiler can make those checks, runtime checks can be streamlined, which results in better performance. C# is a statically typed language and will remain one. However, for those times when dynamic languages provide more efficient solutions, C# offers dynamic features.
