@ahejlsberg

I love what you've done with VS Code and TypeScript - that's dream come true for me! Thank you!

I am sure there are other people who contributed to that but for me you Mr. Anders represent all awesome coding tools like Delphi, C# and now TypeScript.

Thank you for existing!

@github How come there is but no tag !?

As the past user of CoffeeScript and ES6 I want to thank you to all TypeScript team for giving us a language that allow us to apply SOLID principles in JavaScript world. Now, I don't have to scratch my head to find many errors that easily catched by TypeScript compiler. I also feel more confident again with my code since I can write unit tests for my classes and I've spent less time maintaining the test codes. For me TypeScript is the best language in the world because it brings more fun to JavaScript world.

Oh yeah, specially for @ahejlsberg I am a long time Delphi fans and C# users thank you so much for your contribution in Software Engineering field.

I wrote a game about Love in Typescript recently :)

(Githiub Repo)

The experience was amazing for game development. It was my first time really using Typescript on its own. Refactoring was a breeze. I never had to worry about misplacing something and having everything turn up undefined.

Thanks so much to the TypeScript team for really improving my JavaScript workflow and saving a lot of developers a lot of time <3

Anyone else enjoy visiting the TS blog page every few days, just to see if there's a new version out? Each time there is, It's like childhood xmas.

I have tried over 10 programming languages in last 10 years, and my primary languages were java and php. I loved java for its object oriented style and strong typings and rules, and php for its dynamic nature and open source community. Now Im primary TypeScript developer and I love this language because it has everything I wanted to see in a single language.

I've used TS in our organization since v .4 that and we are on latest now. I even open sourced a c#=>.d.ts generator. Thank you! Without ts we could never have used js in 100 sln's not with this many devs.

Nice, good to know TypeScript is being praised! I've received a similar thanks a few months ago too: js-cookie/js-cookie#137.

Only those that work with Open-Source will understand why this matters. It shows that our hobby makes a difference, despite if a project is backed by a corporate or not.

As Kevin Kruse said:

Life is about making an impact, not making an income.

I wished all companies open-sourced their things.

Yes, thank you sir and your team, especially for your opensource, platform neutrality and convergence to standard javascript

Never thought I'd EVER hear myself say this: Keep up your brilliant work Microsoft, doing "embracing and extending" in an commendable way

TypeScript from our perspective has been the great leveler. It has levelled the playing field for JavaScript web/mobile development, by providing a powerful tool for developing scalable applications - available to everyone for absolutely free.

For a startup like ours, this means its possible to develop sophisticated applications with modern UIs and behaviour with limited resources so that we can compete with the big players like Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook.

@ahejlsberg's experience has definitely been the key factor in making TypeScript useful for real-world applications, but the rest of the team is not too bad either! 😄

Although my primary languages are C and COBOL I recently took a look into this new Javascript thing and I must say that I find it equally fascinating and confusing.
Firstly I just cannot get pointers working. The compiler refuses everything and even more strange is that I can't find anything on the internet. And secondly: Is there something like a Makefile in TypeScript?

Sorry for the thread hi-jack, I wont continue this tangent.
@johnfn I have heard about VS code. I downloaded it and tried it, but found jetbrains was superior. VS code is a great step, and I was very happy to see MS even considered such a thing, but I am happy with jetbrains until VS full is released for linux in my case. Thanks for the tip!

In the mean time, back to Typescript praise.

Back on topic, TypeScript is amazing. I can't think of another product which took something so painful to use and made it so simple and enjoyable.

In twenty-five years as a working programmer, I have fallen in love with a piece of technology four times: Emacs (on my third attempt), Tup (the build system by Mike Shal), React... and now TypeScript. I've been using it full-time for a few weeks now, and I can't imagine going back.

That was five months ago, and the love for TypeScript has slowly begun to spread at my workplace. Thanks, all!
