What Is TypeScript?
What Is Node.js?
Among its other major advantages one can find high speed, scalability and efficient performance. However, it is not perfect for CPU-intensive applications. Nodejs is predicted to become more widespread, as according to the statistics, it has shown a stable increase in popularity over the recent time.
Pros and Cons of TypeScript
Among the most prominent advantages of TypeScript one can find quick and transparent identification of code bugs at early stages of the project. Besides, when the software developers specify types, they stay unaltered and have exclusively definite values. Due to this predictability, TypeScript is considered to be a stable and reliable language. As types always function as they should according to the way they were specified, no unexpected emergencies happen. What is more, the language is extremely easy to read and comprehend, as the developer’s intention in the coding is clearly visible to the fellow teammates. This increased level of transparency is achieved thanks to the static typing and adding annotations.
In TypeScript, it is possible to perform the effective application upgrading, which doesn’t require adjustments in the app functioning. The system can catch errors on its own and notify the users if needed, which speeds up the upgrading. With TypeScript, developers can create well-structured code which is organized in a way that assists project growth. This being said, developers can scale the coding when necessary when the project scope expands beyond the initial needs.

Pros and Cons of Node.js
In IT since 1993, SaM Solutions offers professional custom software development services to clients across all industries.
Nodejs offers the possibility of efficient high-performant development in comparison with such languages as Java, PHP, etc. The main peculiarity of Nodejs in this regard is its speed of development. Another huge benefit of Nodejs is its ability to cache data, i.e. to provide safe data storage on the client’s machine with quick access to it when necessary. It becomes especially beneficial when you own a website that has high traffic, as Node.js makes the work on it notably faster. If there is a possibility to cache the files, servers don’t have to send requests to databases as often as they need these files. As a result, the performance of websites is better as the response time is decreased, which influences customer experience in a positive way.

My team and I are using TypeScript on our current project. It’s better suited to large-scale projects and helps detect errors earlier.
I agree that Node.js is a really great technology. With Node.js, I can build highly performing applications. And I found it easy to learn, and it facilitates fast delivery of the product.
I really appreciate the thorough comparison of the technologies in this blog post. I think that in the modern world it is important to keep up with the latest trends in order not to miss the opportunities that the IT industry can offer. So, I think it’s great to utilize both TypeScript and Node.js.
Thank you for the article. Now I have a better understanding about these two tools. I am interested in both and am thinking about learning them.
