When I discovered we would be using Typescript (And what Typescript was), it was a bit of a relief. The way that the language looks just feels more comfortable to me, especially as someone who has mostly been learning Java. I have been trying to expand my horizons as of late, and wanted to look into people that may feel the opposite. Maybe the verbosity and strictness of a strongly-typed object oriented language is bad if you know what you’re doing, and I found a very interesting blog expressing just that.
In my brief time with Typescript so far, I have found it a bit verbose and clunky (though I am certainly a neophyte coder). Hopefully as I continue to learn, these distinctions become more clear and I can post an updated perspective.
