I love it, great for it's domain, I don't have a problem with types as long as they don't make things over verbose but when it's list> things are getting out of hand.

Well if you like SQL “for it’s domain” then you can understand why backend developers like me want to use typeorm to keep our NodeJS business logic in lock-step with the SQL schemes. Check it out. It’s way more fun and flexible that writing a backend in C#/Java/C and it’s honestly a lot less verbose.

I’m not sure that I would always reach for TypeScript for UI code. But for backend code, I can’t imagine he productivity loss of not using s type system.

Anywho, check out typeorm sometime :)
