I’ve heard lots of others say the same, there’s certainly a lot of hype around TS atm!

What are your thoughts? Have you used it? Will you?

It’s obvious now that TypeScript is going to be a very big thing soon. Deno supports TypeScript as a first class language. Front end frameworks are adopting TypeScript, like Vue CLI now provides built in support for TypeScript. I have seen many people preferring to use TypeScript with Node.js.
Also, TypeScript is very similar to JavaScript, unlike other languages compiling to JavaScript.
