A statically-typed Ruby? - Murray

https://www.omniref.com/blog/blog/2014/11/17/matz-at-rubyconf-2014-will-ruby-3-dot-0-be-statically-typed/

This write up from RubyConf goes into more detail about a probably controversial feature that Matz has been mulling over: static types! I’m really interested to see where this feature goes, and even if it doesn’t make it in, what will it get us all thinking about that does make it in?
