Hi there, I'm Azat MARDAN, your tour guide on this merry adventure of TypeScript faux pas. If you're wondering who the heck I am and why you should trust me, that's a fantastic question. I'm the author of the best-selling books Pro Express.js, Full Stack JavaScript, Practical Node.js and React Quickly. For those who are not in the habit of browsing bookstores, those are indeed about JavaScript, Node.js, and React, not TypeScript. But don't let that lead you into a false sense of security. I’ve seen enough TypeScript in the wild during my tech stints at Google, YouTube, Indeed, DocuSign and Capital One to fill an ocean with semicolons. Or maybe more accurately, to forget to fill an ocean with semicolons... but more on that later.
