TypeScript Origins

06 Dec 2023

I love watching tech documentaries on how languages/ frameworks evolved, the journey and the minds behind them. This is another piece of awesomeness. Who would have thought that Microsoft was going to go all-in on opensource and create TypeScript.

I am currently working on moving an entire React Native project to TypeScript and I can see the benefits of using TypeScript as the team grows - few bugs due to more coding discipline. At first I didn't like TypeScript - learning curve and if there are fewer bugs then how do I feel good about fixing stuff down the line :)

As you understand and use TypeScript, you will stop hating it. This is what happened to me.
