I just cost the company I work for tens of thousands of dollars and ruined the relationship between them and a giant partner because I mistyped a variable name by one letter. It somehow slipped through the tests. I personally blame Python for not being a statically typed language (type hints are a placebo), in any language this would have been caught immediately.

    You have shit tests. And even with no tests at all, a fricking linter would've been able to catch that.
    >I personally blame Python for not being a statically typed language
    I blame you for being moronic (you are a frogshitter, do not try to dispute this accusation) and you should be fired effective immediately.

      I'm not gonna say any specifics but the losses came from month and months of incorrect data being stored on processed which then was used by them and us to make certain decisions

    So it doesn't do any kind of internal error handling? Tell us more about the toothpick and bubblegum structures that were keeping you employed.

      what a naive take, you really think that if you produce high quality and maintainable code that you have more of an upper hand on someone who doesn't at being employed? lod'd, lmao'd even

        Depends on the employer and the project. I'll have a number five combo meal, upgraded to a large drink and ranch for my dipping sauce. Hurry up, wagie.

    sorry to hear you have to use python. python is moronic, i only use it to leetcode. static analysis is important. once i used typescript, i never went back. dont even understand how people find it confusing and still opt to use js, when you can just set tsconfig settings to very lax, since all js is valid ts anyway.
