It's 2020: let's build a node.js app with TypeScript
It's 2020. You want to build a node.js app, and you've heard great things about TypeScript. Let this post act as your guide through the forest of compilers and specifications as you navigate to the promised land: a strongly-typed node.js codebase.

In the second of a series of posts, we'll learn how to set up your development environment to build a React Native app.
