Why Type Hints

Python is characterized by dynamic typing, setting it apart from statically typed languages such as C/C++ and Java. In statically typed languages, variables must be explicitly declared with a specific type before they’re assigned a value. Throughout the runtime of a C/C++/Java program, a variable can only hold data of its predetermined type.
