I’ve always been fascinated by the reaction many JavaScript developers have to TypeScript. Many love it and many dislike it. The goal of TypeScript was to bring the order and type integrity found in languages like C# and Java, which makes building large, complex systems much easier. Others dislike it because it alters the anarchistic nature of JavaScript. This makes me wonder how larger organizations react when approaching it.

In this talk from JSConf Hawaii, Brie Bunge talks about the process AirBnB went through to adopt TypeScript throughout their organization.
