To be fair having to learn Typescript AND Angular at the same time makes learning both significantly more difficult.
Nope. I stayed with React and Typescript. Angular's strategy felt too heavy for simple applications.
I wasn't defending angular, I don't use it either. I was saying that learning both at the same time makes both hard to learn.
I definitely took courses on fundamental JS later on, because as wonderful as TS is, at some point you will break your face if you don’t understand the underlying language.
Oh yeah I LOVE TS, I just was overwhelmed with it at my first shot(I come from static typed languages but was very familiar with JS by this point), and it was annoying not knowing if my problems were TS or Angular when I tried learning both at the same time.
Been There. Done that. 👍
If you're in Reactland, it couldn't be easier to get started with TypeScript these days since support landed in Babel 7 and they implemented support in Create React App.
npx create-react-app your-project-name --typescript
