    The title is probably a bit too strong, but having worked extensively with TypeScript for the last several months, I definitely agree with the overall sentiment. The compiler has caught many many bugs, and prevented vast quantities more with great type-aware autocomplete.

    The engineering organization I’m in (my company has a couple) is standardizing on TypeScript for UI development going forward because it makes quality JavaScript code much more achievable.
