I used to hate typescript, now it's my favorite 💖

Hello, world, am Evans based in Africa - Kenya, I have 4+ years of experience in software dev and I love Typescript 💖 💖 💖.

Anyway I created the entire https://melbite.com with react and typescript.

Why did I choose Javascript

  • Javascript is awesome.
  • It provides my daily meal 🥰

Why I hated Javascript.

  • Did not catch bugs in real-time and I used to write poor code.

Why I loved Typescript.

  • Catches bugs effectively.
  • Clean syntax and self-documented code.
  • Easy to collaborate with a team for no one will write poor code.

One of us! One of us!

I’ve been using TS since it became public almost 10 years ago, and I still love it 💖

That's same case with me! I took a kind of gamble using typescript directly into production and kept learning it on the way!

Initially it was kind of hard and each time I saw yellow or red lines, I used to question myself for choosing the dev stack!

Its been almost 1 year and now I use it even in smaller projects because of how much the code & editor itself helps me to prevent silly mistakes!
