With the latest developments TypeScript has become one of the most used programming languages!
TypeScript has been increasing in its popularity for the last couple of years. Angular, one of the largest frontend frameworks is using TypeScript. About 60% of JS programmers already use TypeScript, and
22% wish to try.
Types of TypeScript
TypeScript has a variety of basic types, like Boolean, Number, String, Array, Tuple, etc. Some of these don’t exist in JS; you can learn more about them in the documentation of TypeScript. In addition to those, here are some other types we want to feature to showcase the expressivity of TS:
Any & Unknown
Void is used when there is no value returned, for example, as the return type of functions that return nothing.
Never is the return type for something that should never occur, like a function that will throw an exception.
Intersection & Union types
These enable you to create custom types to better fit your logic. Intersection types enable you to put together several basic types in one type. For example, you could create a custom type Person that has a name: string and a phone_number: number. It is equivalent to saying: I want my type to be this and that.
Union types enable your type to take one of the multiple basic types. For example, you could have a query that returns either result: a string or undefined. It is equivalent to saying: I want my type to be this or that.
Features and Components
There are three fundamental components of TypeScript that make it as awesome as it is. Not only do we get the aforementioned type-checking that comes with the TypeScript language, but we get the TypeScript compiler and language service as well. There’s another key piece to TypeScript’s relevance that often goes overlooked: it’s super well-supported by text editors. TypeScript’s relevance is only as good as it is accessible and something that can be picked up by just about any front-ender.
TypeScript was initially supported only in Microsoft’s Visual Studio code editor because TypeScript is maintained by Microsoft and all. But as TypeScript grew legs, more code editors and IDEs began started supporting it either natively or with plugins.
Salary of a Typescript Developer
The average senior typescript developer salary in the USA is US$130,000 per year or US$66.67 per hour. Entry-level positions start at US$120,000 per year while most experienced workers make up to US$165,000 per year.
