I am a 80% backend and 20% frontend dev, and my first journey into Typescript was from developing React frontend.Then, I brushed up the basic using this free course from Scrimba. Nowadays I am exploring Nest JS and learning more in depth Typescript with stronger typing and dependency injection.


I just learned how to use Node with TypeScript in an Udemy course. The teacher mentioned NestJS as an alternative to Express. It looks similar to Express I might try it in the future. So much to learn.


In a sense, Nest JS is actually quite different than Express, although Nest JS is built on top of Express.

The one thing that really trip me up is how opinionated Nest JS is compared to Express, especially their dependency injection pattern. But after awhile, it will feel natural and you would be thankful to have structures in the code.


Thanks for sharing this course and good luck with your learning ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ


I think most things are out in the open. More from a React perspective, learning TS can be done following the advice from this article:


Thank you ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ


I learned typescript by learning NodeJS. I learned it using this udemy course and from the official ts documentation. The best way to retain what you learned is by coding a project, which I did by making a backend for my custom iOS app.


Changed my files to be .ts. Cried about the errors and red squigglies. Fixed them one by one. Learned typescript in the process.


Learn TypeScript: The Complete Course for Beginners by a Netflix engineer Patrick Desjardins is a great place to start for beginners.


I just used the official Typescript website. Every once in a while I had a specific question but StackOverflow always had my back. :)


I must admit that TypeScript handbook on website is really well written ๐Ÿ‘Œ


read the documentation and build something yourself is the best way to do it I believe.


The TS documentation is surprisingly good.


Couldn't agree more. Handbook is amazing ๐Ÿ‘Œ


@benawad 's content is great ๐Ÿ‘Œ especially his video on React and TypeScript.

I am using this course right now by Maximilian Schwarzmรผller its awesome udemy.com/course/understanding-typ...


Thank you. I will check it out. To my surprise, its not on sale on Udemy ๐Ÿ˜‚


I just checked its on sale now so assuming you read this message in time maybe you can get it ๐Ÿ˜‰ 5 hours left.

Udemy sales work on region base, I think. It's not on sale here.


I really enjoyed executeprogram.com. The JS courses are good, too.


It's an interesting approach to learn step by step. Thanks for sharing this :)
