Introduction Typically, computer languages have fallen into two camps: Statically-typed languages. Dynamically-typed languages. Statically-typed Languages These languages have specific variable types and the developer compiles the code using an ‘ahead-of-time’ compiler. The compiler type checking is performed before the code is run.  This is an excellent way to develop software as the compiler performs static-analysis of the code as part of the compilation, alerting the developer when issues arise. Software typically takes longer to develop in this method, but the software developed in this manner typically works better in complex scenarios. Dynamically-typed Languages These languages don’t have specific variable types...

The ‘var’ keyword declares a variable without specifying its type, leaving the variable as a dynamic. No type is specified. The ‘dynamic’ keyword declares a variable of the type ‘dynamic’ with optional typing. It marks variable as 'not type checked'. Exception (Methods) Methods need to return a type so they will work with 'dynamic' but  wont work with 'var': void main() {   print (multiplyMethod1(2,4));   print (multiplyMethod2(2,4)); }   dynamic multiplyMethod1(int a, int b){   return a * b; }  ...
