Discussion on: What about TypeScript?

Amazing, especially in a team, as it forcibly makes sure everybody is using the same parameters for functions, passing the right types and enforcing good practices + clean code all at the same time. When paired with Webpack and react, typescript is amazing.

BUT, regarding going back to JS; initially, I wanted to. A lot of the syntax was a little overwhelming. I had never really worked with strict typing, and so TS was a little learning curve. I persisted, I learnt how to use TS better, and it's now my programming language. IMO, keep at it, it will be worth it! Good Luck OP!
