What are the benefits of a dynamically typed language, when compared to a strongly typed language like C# or Java, and how would this help in the context of web development? What would make a dynamically typed language so attractive? Or, does the popularity of PHP have more to do with it being free?
Okay, I think I better give a little more background to get more meaningful answers, because I am not wanting a flame war.
Getting into PHP would be nice. I think that Visual Studio has spoiled me - but again Eclipse is also equally spoiling.
