Buzzword Buster – Duck Typing

The term ‘duck typing’ is often used to describe a type of dynamic typing in programming languages where the object’s current set of methods and properties determines the valid semantics.

duck test – If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck
