Discussion on: Thoughts on interpreted vs compiled languages?

I agree, but on the other hand: fixing something in the backend and not having to recompile and restart the server is awesome once you get used to it.

Trade-offs, trade-offs...

Getting into this a bit late but most statically typed languages support incremental compilation so you only have to compile the part which changed. Also, Java server-based applications I have worked on support hot-code reloading in development mode. The feedback loop is not as bad as people think.
