Piotr Monwid-Olechnowicz: Power of Preconditions: Why assertion signatures are huge for me
TypeScript 3.7 brings us an amazing tool to concisely write preconditions that can't be described in a function signature. With assertion signatures we can get rid of these ugly "if (not cool) throw new Error("totally not cool")" blocks.
We're gonna talk about partial and total functions, returning vs throwing errors and I'll show you how assertion signatures make my React code safer.
I write stupid stuff fast and I trust that the type system will protect me from myself.
