Discussion on: A Simple Argument For Typescript

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 :)
