What do you mean "ho ho"?

Broot is coded in Rust, of which Séguret remarks, “There's this thing quite new in Rust: when you make your code compile, it works and usually does what you wanted it to do.” Ho ho.

This is quite common in languages with a very strong type system (not the limited type systems of C, .NET and the JVM). Once it compiles, it just works. It does mean embracing the type system for maximum effect which is definitely a move away from languages like JavaScript.
