In the last couple of weeks I've become a TypeScript champion. My company just switched over to it and it's much better than plain JS.

Of course but is not about being better than plain JS. Remember TypeScript still is JavaScript but with super powers!

Oh, absolutely. But, it makes it so much easier to work with. I like that you can still use regular JavaScript within it. In fact, yesterday we solved a problem by writing out some pure JavaScript in the middle of a TypeScript function call while developing an Angular application.
