re: TypeScript + NodeJS VIEW POST


Have you heard of Deno? I've played around with node for a while now, and created some services using express/mongoose along with mongoDb, not had the opportunity to work with it professionally yet outside of some unit testing.

However from what I understand is that Deno a TypeScript runtime from the creator of Node. Worth a checkout. But honestly more organizations are still probably using Node and will be in the future for a while. I think if you have a solid understanding of JavaScript and can write clean code in Vanilla JavaScript, don't worry about trying to learn something like Typescript for portfolio purposes.

With that said. I love TypeScript for the strong typings it offers and the OOP feel that doesn't come with poorly written JavaScript. My two cents.
