Hey all,
For my new job I need to learn Typescript with Node.js for backend and React for frontend,
For those who don't know me I comes from Python and Java background with almost no experience in frontend

If you can share any tips or resources for learning you will get hug and a cookie :)

Thanks all

Hey eranelbaz! I think it might have been posted in here, but I've made a full Introduction to TypeScript video course over here, which might be useful.

I've also written an article introducing JavaScript developers to TypeScript, which you can check out here.

Let me know if you have any other questions - happy to help where I can!

I might not able to tell much about React, but how do you plan you backend?

MERN stack?

I believe if you know your way in SQL, PostGres or MySQL should be better. However, MongoDB integrates very well with TypeScript.

Also, Express.js is nothing like Spring or Django. It is more like Flask.
