A few days ago I started preparing for my first tech talk.

One of the common questions about ReasonML and ReasonReact is: Why not TypeScript?

If you’re looking for a statically typed alternative for JavaScript, TypeScript seems like the obvious choice.

I did a TypeScript workshop with FrontEnd Masters (online) a while ago, but I have to admit that I didn’t use TypeScript in practice.

The last few days I started creating a simple TypeScript React app. I hope that it’ll help me get a better perspective on the advantages and trade-offs of TypeScript vs. Reason.
