Hi Remo. Thanks for the post to share your experience and helping the TypeScript community.

Because as I adopted TypeScript very early

Context: I haven't used TypeScript but proficient in C#.

I have been using C# since .NET 2.0 and been able to keep up to C# 7 as the change was gradual.

Would you be able to share how to get started with TypeScript for someone who've never used TypeScript?

(I feel a bit overwhelmed since TypeScript is so mature & I will feel the same way with C# should I start again from scratch).

 

I just converted my JS frontend to TS frontend. I've learned a lot about TypeScript during this process. Also, TypeScript has wonderful tooling! I love how well VS Code integrates with TypeScript, providing code completions and such (yeah I know both of them are born under Microsoft, so they will work together pretty well, but still!)

 

So you can start converting a component written in JavaScript to TypeScript one by one?

Are there any interop issues? TYpeScript component not being able to call components written in pure JavaScript, vice versa.

Yes.

No, AFAIK. You can use your pure JS components and libraries.

 

Thanks for the feedback, I will think about it and try to put something together.

 

Install VScode and ts-node, then simply run ts-node in place of node for any .ts file. Make sure you have a tsconfig.json and tslint.json file as well and refer to TypeScript’s getting started page.

 

I just released ladder.ts.training/ it might help you during the learning process :)

 

Thank you Remo for the curated list of TypeScript learning resources 😀
