Zeros and Ones - TypeScript

Matthew Savage

Hey there! I’m Matthew, and for my inaugural post I’m going to start a hopefully-recurring segment called “Zeros and Ones” - essentially, opinions on a given topic broken down into zeros (negatives) and ones (positives). Today’s post will discuss a language I’ve fallen in love with over the past couple of months: Typescript.

If you’re not familiar with TypeScript, it’s a superset of JavaScript that adds the ability to annotate variables with types. It was created by and is maintained by Microsoft, who introduced it in Ocotober 2012.
