TypeScript has taken over the JavaScript ecosystem at an incredible pace, and not everyone is happy about it. In this session we'll review some of the reasons teams say they have moved away from TypeScript, so we can evaluate their conclusions and come up with some guidance for your own projects. More importantly, we'll focus on tips to make the TypeScript you write as productive as possible, working _with_ the type system instead of against it.

Prerequisites

Familiarity with JavaScript and either experience with or curiosity about TypeScript.
