Typescript vs Javascript

Please talk about this if you have used at least one of them proficently or you have some decent knowledge in them.

IIRC, TypeScript was Microsoft fixing the issues with JavaScript that arose from the lack of strict types. Basically, TypeScript adds strict data types/structures to JavaScript to make it more readable and easy to debug.


so, which do you prefer?

I don’t know or use TypeScript so I can’t really choose, this is just some context I remember reading in an article somewhere

I hate JS, but I have and use it. Typescript is supposed to be a more formally correct and cleaned alternatives with quite some resemblance to JS.
But this said, I would still pick JS and learn typescript basics only in case angular is of interest.
