I am a 80% backend and 20% frontend dev, and my first journey into Typescript was from developing React frontend.Then, I brushed up the basic using this free course from Scrimba. Nowadays I am exploring Nest JS and learning more in depth Typescript with stronger typing and dependency injection.

 

I just learned how to use Node with TypeScript in an Udemy course. The teacher mentioned NestJS as an alternative to Express. It looks similar to Express I might try it in the future. So much to learn.

 

In a sense, Nest JS is actually quite different than Express, although Nest JS is built on top of Express.

The one thing that really trip me up is how opinionated Nest JS is compared to Express, especially their dependency injection pattern. But after awhile, it will feel natural and you would be thankful to have structures in the code.

 

Thanks for sharing this course and good luck with your learning 🙏🏼

 

I learned typescript by learning NodeJS. I learned it using this udemy course and from the official ts documentation. The best way to retain what you learned is by coding a project, which I did by making a backend for my custom iOS app.

 

I think most things are out in the open. More from a React perspective, learning TS can be done following the advice from this article:

 

Thank you 🙏🏼

 

Changed my files to be .ts. Cried about the errors and red squigglies. Fixed them one by one. Learned typescript in the process.

 
 

@benawad 's content is great 👌 especially his video on React and TypeScript.

Learn TypeScript: The Complete Course for Beginners by a Netflix engineer Patrick Desjardins is a great place to start for beginners.

 

I am using this course right now by Maximilian Schwarzmüller its awesome udemy.com/course/understanding-typ...

 

Thank you. I will check it out. To my surprise, its not on sale on Udemy 😂

 

I just checked its on sale now so assuming you read this message in time maybe you can get it 😉 5 hours left.

Udemy sales work on region base, I think. It's not on sale here.

 

I just used the official Typescript website. Every once in a while I had a specific question but StackOverflow always had my back. :)

 

I must admit that TypeScript handbook on website is really well written 👌

 

read the documentation and build something yourself is the best way to do it I believe.

 

The TS documentation is surprisingly good.

 

Couldn't agree more. Handbook is amazing 👌

 
 

I really enjoyed executeprogram.com. The JS courses are good, too.

 

It's an interesting approach to learn step by step. Thanks for sharing this :)

 

This typescript exercise has helped me a lot.

 

Ultimately never saw ts benefits outweighing ts cost. I'm over it, bye-bye ts!
