This talk is intended to be an introduction to implementing static typing into your python code. I will present information on how to implement static typing into new and existing code bases. Talk about the reasons why someone would want to implement static types and why I was against it only one year ago.
In this presentation I would like to introduce implementing static typing to people who may not be familiar, and give reason for why static types can be valuable, and discuss how it can reduce the potential for bugs. I will briefly talk about the history that led to the current and future state of static type support within Python.
