About me

David is a long-time maths- and Swedish teacher who finally succumbed to his passion for programming. Originally his programmer persona was a jack-of-all-trades, but he has since shed his earlier .NET .PHP .whatever skills in order to make room for anything and everything JavaScript. Down that rabbit hole David spends his time keeping up with the goings on behind the curtain and trying out the latest frameworks. He has a special fondness for finding ways to harness the functional nature of JavaScript, and thus the new kids on the JS block such as React and Redux makes him very happy indeed!

Why TypeScript?

A few contrasting examples: in JavaScript it's fine to forget a  property in an object literal, to call a function with the wrong number  of arguments, or to write code that will never be reached in a program. TypeScript flags all of these things as errors, often directly in an  IDE.
