Lisa and Janet:

I work entirely with dynamic languages, and it has drastically improved our test coverage because the nature of the language itself. Dynamic languages are much easier to test and also much more likely to cause bugs because compilation doesn't find many errors.

Do you have any experience with Agile processes in a dynamic language environment? Is there anything you might highlight or disregard about the agile process in this environment?

Thanks!

I'm hoping Janet might have an answer for this one because it's not an area I'm familiar with.
