What is Typescript
Some key features include:
Typescript helps with faster code development, thus improving performance.
At the time of development, Typescript introduces the compilation problems. This reduces the chances of runtime errors.
- null check
- Access Modifiers
The team that develops some of the most popular open sources use Typescript for the development of these libraries. One of the most popular examples is Angular.
This means that most of the documentation and examples of these frameworks, mainly Angular, are written with Typescript. Eventually this means that the applications that are developed using these libraries are made with Typescript.
Angular is perhaps the most prominent example, practically all applications in Angular are written using Typescript, if you want to understand the framework thoroughly, you need to know Typescript.
Conclusion and my personal opinion
Learning Typescript introduces you to an amazing programming language, with even better development tools. Particularly Visual Studio Code will offer an interesting number of improvements to your development flow. Personally, this has helped me a lot to reduce my work times and the detection of errors increases drastically.
The amazing thing about using Typescript is that you can quickly configure it in your project, most frameworks allow you to install a Typescript boilerplate where you will get everything configured automatically.
This magnificent language is also supported by gigantic companies that are implementing it and also Microsoft who keeps it updated, so much so that it appears on the list of the most demanded languages in recent years.
So, what are you waiting for to learn it?
