Lessons learned converting Snyk codebase to TypeScript
Over the past 16 months Snyk have been converting their entire codebase to TypeScript, Lili would like to share the reasons, motivations and lesson learned with others thinking to do the same. There have been wins and bumps along the way but overall they left their codebase in a much better place than ever before.
