Discussion on: TypeScript is a waste of time. Change my mind.

I like TS. You can pair your types with similar in backend application (Spring Boot ... ). Every developer now, what is coming from server. Therefore TS is fine in describing JSON data. In intelisense (VS Code) you have direct access and error messages for specified types.

I dont like TS. It is not solution for undefined issues, you must write sh.ts like checks for undefined. This is JS, no types like in Java, C#. TS is for me only good linter. Layer between developer and JS.

Developers must now, if is it important or not.
