A freshly molted Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens

Yesterday, in the early evening, I noticed that the Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens I keep had molted. And today, because I could guide it carefully in a different position, I took a few photos.

In the photo above you can see why this tarantula has the common name green bottle blue tarantula or GBB for short.

Typing your way into safety

I've been working with Python typing annotation in the last few years as part of our main product at Flare Systems. I've found it to be a wonderful tool to support refactoring and make the code more readable. Lately, I explored how we can make API safer with the uses of types. I will specifically look about how we can use Python typing annotation to make os.system foolproof.
