  • Seeing gradual typing come to both Ruby and Python at around the same time is fascinating.
  • Seeing some responses (“If I wanted static types I’d use a real statically typed language”) which just completely miss the point.
  • The idea is that you can add these kinds of type annotations where—and only where—they’re useful.
