That is what people think but if we look at data from projects and companies actually other things are way more important then the language they use ;)

Here is one study for example but please feel free to look into more!

I’m definitely not trying to understate the importance of other code quality measures, but this study appears to say typescript would have caught at least 15% bugs on average. That’s huge.

A software production, in general, has a time limit and if you are not working on a hobby project you are hoping for a good ROI.

Having 115% more money in the bank after one month or having 180% more in the bank ;)

I would go with 180% since it has a way bigger ROI :)

Thats just my point :)

Doesn’t this oversimplify things? Saving dev costs doesn’t matter a ton if your app is buggy and unusable.

The bank example was more of a metaphor.

ROI in this means less bugged code in less time :)
We invest less to get more out :)
