What is TypeScript?
- Both JS and TS are programming languages that are used for developing web applications and other software.
- Both JS and TS support asynchronous programming, which is essential for building responsive and scalable web applications.
- Both JS and TS are object-oriented programming languages.
- Both JS and TS can run on the client-side (browser) as well as on the server-side (backend).
- TypeScript is a strongly-typed language, which means that every variable and function must have a specific type. This can help catch errors at compile-time rather than at runtime, which can save time and reduce bugs in the code.
- TypeScript code can be harder to read for developers who are not familiar with TypeScript, due to the additional syntax required for type annotations.
