TypeScript

One of the most used programming languages among developers. TypeScript is a syntactic superset of JavaScript that adds static typing. This basically means that TypeScript adds syntax on top of JavaScript, allowing developers to add types. TypeScript is allowing to specify the types of data being passed around within the code, and has the ability to report errors. For example, TypeScript will report an error when passing a string into a function that expects a number. JavaScript will not. It uses compile time type checking, therefore checks if the specified types match before running the code, not while running the code.

Slack, Accenture, Kavak, Asana use TypeScript in their tech stack.
 

Swift

Swift is a powerful and intuitive programming language developed by Apple in 2010 and released in 2014. It is used for iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS.
