So my intention was just give the basics, no frameworks or anything like that, innocent me didn't know that I would fall in love with programming and web development.
The start was hard, it was my first programming language so it was a lot of new concepts in my mind,but with time and patience (I recognize I got frustrated a few times during the way,but the support of my girlfriend made a difference) I could learn it and then after that my ideas of stop there were totally gone.
So my mind was like
¿ Why would I need to indicate the types ?
¿ Why would I take that effort and extra time ?
I just couldn't find the sense.
Dart is the language that made me start to appreciate the benefits of the Typed languages even do not being strongly typed It was perfect for me since I was doing it because I was having a more comfortable experience programming.
Then I did myself the magical question that started the trip that ended with me here writing this.
¿Why do not give a chance to Typescript?
And oh boy, It was like discover the fire.
I started using Typescript in my Node-Express Projects and it felt awesome, in the client side I took more time to give the Jump, but now I can say that both my Node and React code is written in Typescript and I don't have any regrets.
I want to share my experience so maybe someone read this and get the motivation necessary to give a try and maybe he finds as useful as I did , and in case that no, at least you tried a different thing that is always good.
My favorite things of Typescript are:
- Detect errors while coding not while running
- You know in every moment what you are doing and with what you are working
So I hope someone find my experience useful and didn't get too bored with this long post
Thank you for read!
