Topic: Type Hints: Adding Gradual Typing to Python 3.5


Speaker: Guido van Rossum



Python is dynamically typed, and proudly so. Yet, at least since 2000, I've been thinking about a way to add optional static typing to the language, in a way that lets users choose the benefits of static typing without forcing everyone to suffer the downsides. Some recent developments in other languages as well as experiments with Python have led the way to a new approach, and I'm excited to present here, for the first time, my plans for the gradual introduction of gradual typing into Python, as written up in PEP 484.


Guido van Rossum is Python's creator and BDFL. This year he celebrates
Python's 25th birthday.
