I accidentally posted this on Sunday for a short time, just after promising to continue as a weekly Monday series. In case you saw that post or commented on it, I'm sorry. This is the final republished version.
Speak about the whys, not the hows. It's okay to include a few favorite libs and patterns but it should not be the main focus of your comment.
No Googling! I am interested in Your opinion, experience, anecdotes, and gut feelings.
Your comment might get linked or quoted in the weekly summary if you are not asking otherwise. I never quote comments in a negative context.
Do you prefer strongly or weakly typed languages?
Do you have a favorite language type system wise? What makes it better than the rest?
Can you mention situations when using types caught early errors for you?
How does TypeScript relate to group projects? Does it make the barrier of entry and cooperation simpler or more difficult compared to vanilla JS?
Whatever pops into your mind about types.
All comments are welcomed, there is no wrong answer!
