Welcome to my PinkLetter. A short, weekly, technology-agnostic, and pink newsletter where we cultivate timeless skills about web development.
I’d love to hear your feedback about something I crafted: Thinking in TYPEScript—Tiny type-level tricks to kick asses (and runtime errors).
You can reply to this email or get in touch on Twitter.
TypeScript’s never type is very under-discussed, because it’s not nearly as ubiquitous or inescapable as other types. A TypeScript beginner can probably ignore never type as it only appears when dealing with advanced types, such as conditional types, or reading their cryptic type error messages.
A general solution to the cubic equation was long considered impossible, until we gave up the requirement that math reflect reality.
I would advise you not to worry that much about whether your code will be considered clean but whether it serves its purpose.
