Why we might want to start type checking our JavaScript and how that could even work

Type: Presentation & Discussion

Host/Speaker: Paul Morris [:pmorris]

JavaScript is a dynamically typed language, but now TypeScript's tooling can be used to statically type check plain vanilla JavaScript files (with some help from JSDoc). Type checking offers various benefits that include catching certain classes of bugs sooner (before they get to users) and making code easier to understand. Tools like ESLint and Prettier have improved Thunderbird's JavaScript code and developer experience. Would type checking be a good next step and how might that work?
