I thought it was good. I really like type checking. I remember the first
time I figured out what was going on when the compiler gave me an error
message for using foo where I wanted foo*. Thank you!

They are focusing on Python 3. Dropbox has updated 2 out of 6 million lines
The general idea is to add info to the source code that the runtime ignores
but pypy can process. Python 2 requires different syntax.
There is some mechanism for adding info without editing the source. TypeShed
is the buzzword. It contains type info on lots of the system libraries.
How much longer will we support python 2? I think Guido said it goes EoL at
the start of 2020, but will probably be in use long after that. Do any of
our current targets not support Python 3?
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
