We at THAT have a lot of JavaScript, I mean A LOT. I have been considering migrating many of our projects over to TypeScript and I would like to hear your experiences working with it, **good and bad**. A few things I wonder about We use Babel as precompiler is changing it for TypeScript difficult. How well does it handle having both .ts and .js files in a project. Does this cause weird edge cases? How about testing? How much different are the unit tests and how much effort is it updating them? I am sure there is a whole list of things I haven't considered; stop by and let me know what they are and let me know, "I should have been on TS all along", or "run away, run away quickly" 😃
