You also have awesome projects like io-ts and runtypes to have type validation at run time

Good point. When the inventor of Node creates a new runtime that is designed specifically for TypeScript... you know what there’s something special about TypeScript. I can’t wait for Deno to gain traction.

Deno's different tho. What I meant about "runtime" is checking for types that occur at the runtime (e.g. API requests). Deno is a fork to Node.js.
