Why I Like Using TypeScript
26th Oct 2021
TypeScript has been around for several years now and over that time has gone from something people scoffed at to an integral part of many open source projects and frameworks. This has been great for me, I really like using TypeScript and it's increasing popularity has made the day-to-day usage has become easier and even more fun!
There's a sanity which lives in the TypeScript land, where I don't have to worry about so many gremlins hiding in plain site about to jump out and surprise you.
It also helps me plan new data structures and communicate to other developers what to expect when they inherit code which they have not written.
It feels like a gift to my future self, here you go Dave, have some cake instead of a black box of who-knows-what.
I know, I can be a pessimistic, worrying fellow sometimes and these little things just reduce anxiety and make me happy 👽
Here's to a few more years of happy TSing
