It is freeing.  Simple experiments take far less time.  What many here
(myself included) will tell you is to spend the time you formerly
spent on defining and declaring types on creating test cases.  Then
you have nicely unit-tested code for only a bit more effort than you
had to spend on gettting a program to run before.
