Python Gradual Typing: The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

Python is well known as a dynamically typed language, but it has an increasingly mature system of type annotations which can be gradually introduced to an existing code base. I’d like to tell you some good stuff, some bad stuff and some terrible stuff - based around my experience adding type annotations to a large Python codebase over the last few years.
