Previous seminar at Goto 10 in Malmö

Type checking and type safety without TypeScript

13 feb 2024, 17:30–20:00 | Organizer: Foo Café

The event has passed.

TypeScript is one of the best things to happen to the JavaScript ecosystem, but at the same time it is a restriction on the language itself.

TypeScript fully delivers on the promise of improving the developer experience, type safety, and reducing type-related errors, but it hugely fails to deliver on the promise of being a JavaScript superset, forcing us to abandon (or make more complicated) some of JavaScript's features in order to follow the TypeScript way.

Recently some major projects such as Svelte have abandoned TypeScript but continue to use the compiler to validate types and generate .d.ts type definition files, making use of JSDoc.

In this talk we will learn how to use JSDoc to retain practically the same benefits of TypeScript but without the drawbacks.

Goto 10 är en arena där individer och organisationer kan dela kunskap, idéer och perspektiv. Detta event speglar arrangörens åsikter och delas inte nödvändigtvis av oss på Goto 10 och Internetstiftelsen. På Goto 10 får idéer och kunskap testas, diskuteras och utvecklas så länge de följer våra riktlinjer.
