Last year Martin introduced me to TypeScript properly while we were working on an old project. The simplicity of a single dependency (TypeScript) vs. Babel and a number of plugin dependencies to compile for the browser is a big factor for me.
I stumbled across a post on the Go subreddit asking about the patterns people use for building command-line applications. The post interested me because I’d recently written a number of command-line apps using Go. With writing these I had developed a number of patterns that I reuse when building command-line apps now.
Just a quick anecdote from last Saturday evening while Martin and I were pairing on our project.
