What is TypeScript?
The first public version was released in 2012, and support has since been incorporated into a host of applications, for example, TypeScript for Visual Studio. But its open source nature means the underlying source code is available for developers to utilise and build on via GitHub.
Who created TypeScript?
One of the biggest differences in the way the two languages function is that TypeScript identifies errors in the code as you type, which is known as static typing. Dynamic typing, on the other hand, means it's not possible to identify a mistake until the code is executed. This could, in turn, lead to minor errors being buried in the larger codebase.
Several integrated development environments (IDE), meanwhile, allow support for TypeScript. These include platforms like VS Doe, ATom Sublime, and Microsoft Visual Studio. Which system you opt for is, however, often a matter of personal preference and any particular project's needs.
