TypeScript is a superset of JavaScript that adds static typing to the language, enabling developers to catch errors early in the development process and write more robust and maintainable code. It compiles down to plain JavaScript and can be used for both frontend and backend development. TypeScript provides features like interfaces, classes, and advanced type checking, making it easier to scale and manage large codebases.

Compared to plain JavaScript, TypeScript offers better tooling support, improved code readability, and enhanced code refactoring capabilities. It is actively maintained by Microsoft and has a large community backing, ensuring continuous updates and improvements.
