Discussion on: Downsides of TypeScript?

There is also the downside, that you can use TypeScript totally wrong and end up with code that is more complicated than plain JavaScript, but without any of the real benefits of TypeScript. Since its flexible enough, you could end up just using it wrong and not really getting enough benefits.

I personally thing making things as strict as possible can really help, but to each their own :D

Yeah, I try my best not to have too many explicit any and cheat like that. Need to learn more about the concepts to avoid unnecessarily bloating the code without gaining the benefits of TypeScript.
