re: Why learn... a statically typed language? VIEW POST


Thanks for the article! I liked your look at the tradeoffs.

I write node.js applications and try to keep a very airtight standard of correctness; so my first statically typed language is typescript!

The funny thing about the “world” part you noted is that in dynamically typed languages (JavaScript) implementing input validation for API endpoints still takes a great deal of work. However, with io-ts I’m looking forward to using the types as validators. Of course this won’t check everything my custom validator would, but it seems like a useful start!
