In addition to Python and Alore, the design of mypy has been influenced by Java, C#, Typed Racket, Boo, Dart and the work of Jeremy G. Siek and Walid Taha on gradual typing.
Jukka is the primary developer of mypy. Born and raised in Finland, Jukka now works as an engineer at Dropbox in San Francisco. He works on mypy on his spare time.
