On this point my response was kind of flippant. More serious:
With C and C#, the compiler goes to great effort to flag problems
before run-time, and static typing is also available.
Delphi I have no idea.
VB I don't know (However, with VBA I know there are static object
types. I don't remember what other steps the compiler takes when you
save or compile a script)
I would not lump xtalks and C, C#, VB, Delphi all into one category. I
still believe there are a lot of challenge that are unique to xtalks
