comment Is “Computer Science != Software Engineering” an excuse to teach programming poorly?
@SnOrfus, I don't see your point. This is programming SE, not CS SE.

Why is the question limited to CS? I don't think it's possible to get a maths degree now without writing code either.

comment What do you call a customer's customer in a specification document, use case, or scenario?
@jmort253, simple: never use the word customer. Shopper and merchant.

comment What arguments are there in favor of weak typing?
As a side-note, it's possible to write dynamically typed code in some statically typed languages, such as Java and C#, by making everything object. One important case where this is used is interfacing with a database without using an ORM.

@Renesis, I don't, no. But the ML family of languages is statically typed and uses type inference so you very rarely have to explicitly state the type of a variable.

Your comment "// no i = ((Array)data).length or Array myArr=(Array)data;" isn't really anything to do with dynamic typing, because the array-ness of data is provable at compile-time. A statically typed language could propagate knowledge obtained from instanceof.
