Discussion on: Is TypeScript Really... A Language??

Not sure this is much of a debate. It’s a language, it just gets compiled during a build process instead of being interpreted. Unless you use Dino, which I think runs it natively. It’s design to look and feel similar to JavaScript, because it’s a super set. And they change the language to match the future features in JavaScript.
