Nicely written!

I think there's a lot of good qualities for TypeScript that outweigh the bad qualities that the other article tried to point out.

TypeScript can be really useful for new frontend developers who know next to nothing about JavaScript. It seemed to work really well when I pushed hard to get our developers to use it on our React project.

Great point! In many ways TypeScript can be used as a tool for teaching Javascript.
