Primarily, when we think about developing a website, application, or software the foremost concerning question is about the platforms, technology, language, and design. Because these factors affect the performance, security, UX/UI, and endurance of the application and software.

2) What is TypeScript?
TypeScript is a strongly typed and compiled programming language used for scripting heavy and complex web development projects. TypeScript is considered both a language and a set of tools.
TypeScript is an open-source and object-oriented programming language that has added features, tools, and interfaces.
3) Language is the Concern
Selecting the scripting language out of static and dynamic is one of the major concerns for the developer. Let’s understand the difference between static and dynamic language:
Static Language: Safer Codes
While using static language you must inevitably declare the data type of variables while defining it. For example, if variable y is defined as number 10, in the static language it would consider variable y as a number storage variable. It could be changed to another number like 15, 20,27, and so on.
Perhaps in a static language, if you want to make variable y into any name, for example, “Marc”, in such case the language will come up with an error and the program wouldn’t run.
In a static language, you may counter several errors while writing the code but the chances of having bugs and errors while testing and running the program will be minimal.
Dynamic Language: Easy to Write
Dynamic language is used by developers as it is easy to write and for speedy optimization. Dynamically-typed languages allow you to enter any type of data into a variable. In a dynamic language, you don’t need to define the variable’s value before you start implying it.
Let’s say for example developers wants the number to be entered into the Add function-
def add (y)
So, here if 2 is added the result will be 4, and if 6 is added it will give 8, and program will work accordingly. The program will function smoothly if it keeps on receiving the numbers only. The problem will arise when a user will enter a name instead of a number because the value of the variable is not defined.
For instance, if the user enters “pork” as the value of y, now y+pork may display an error or it could result in “pork2”. So, not defining the type and variable could confuse the computer, developer as well as user.
If static language is used this problem could have been countered and resolved during the development process only-but this is not the case with a dynamic language.
- TypeScript is suitable if many developers are working on a single project
- If the project is complex and has large codes it is advisable to go with TypeScript
- Runtime overhead can be skipped with TypeScript by undergoing compile-time validation
- With TypeScript you can avail the help of IntelliSense if you are not familiar with APIs
