Personally, I've heard about Typescript, but never took the time to learn it. It was only a matter of time before I ended up working on a project already using Typescript. And the time has come...
Note: The following thoughts are only personal feelings. My experience with Typescript is limited. I will be glad to receive feedbacks from more experienced Typescript users 😉
I'll admit that certain questions rarely popped into my head before. Is this variable going to ALWAYS be a string? What type is this function going to return?...
Having to think about these things requires a little bit more preparation before I write my code, and different mindset.
Code written is Typescript feels more documented, and once I got used to the syntax and knew what I was reading, I felt more confortable with the code other people wrote.
I'm honestly still conflicted about the utility of Typescript. I'm liking what I see so far, but I'll need to experiment more to have a clear opinion.
I'd love to have feedbacks from Typescript users.
- Did you notice better quality in the code?
- How did Typescript change the development type?
- Do you notice a difference between using Typescript in small teams and bigger teams?
Happy coding 😊
