Have you ever worked with a piece of JS code and thought any of these?:
In TypeScript - unless you are dealing with anys - the problems go away and your IDE or terminal can give you answers to these questions in real-time. Huge productivity boost.
That is why I will never again work on a codebase that doesn't leverage static typing.
I have the experience that people that behave like OP in thinking "this is a waste of time tool I prefer raw", usually is people that think their code is a piece of art and there's no imperfection on it, which translates later in a disaster code base.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
