About TypeScript

class HelloWorld {
  static hello(name = 'World') {
        return `Hello, ${name}!`
    }
}

export default HelloWorld

TypeScript (TS) is a superset of JavaScript (JS), created at Microsoft in response to frustration developing large-scale applictions in JS. In a large JS project, knowing what properties your own objects have, what arguments your functions take (and what type they need to be) can become difficult. Similarly, since there is no ability to intelligently inspect JS code, when you include a package (like from npm), you have to keep the documentation up so you know what methods are available and what arguments they take. TS solves these issues. It is currently an open-source project hosted on Github. It supports tools for any browser as well as Node, for any host, on any OS. TTS compiles to readable, standards-based JavaScript.

TS adds a flexible type system to JS, in addition to interfaces (custom types) and modifying the syntax of some ECMAScript features such as classes. Types are optional and flexible (for example, you can specify an argument is a string OR a number). Types allow tooling available in most code editors that improve the development experience such as code completion and method detection, both in your own code and in packages you use. It supports many upcoming ECMASCript features (such as async/await). TS can be written in OO or functional styles. It is compatible with all existing JS packages. TS transpiles to clean, readable JS.

I got started using typescript to write VS Code extensions such as Power Mode. I now mentor use it daily in my role as a front-end developer and mentor others on my team as we migrate more and more of our codebase to typescript.

As a believer in the communicative power of type systems, I think TypeScript has an opportunity to bring lessons learned in other communities to the world of front-end web development.
Fun. Challenging. Interesting

I'm a career-changer from education, and I used Exercism to reinforce my skills as I made the switch. I love TypeScript for the flexibility of JS with the consistency of strongly typed languages. Maintaining the TS track has grown my appreciation for the language.
