The amount of times tests have saved my ass, I always write tests, I even enjoy writing tests and seeing all the green!
Also if you don't write your tests along with your code and leave it for the next developer, a lot of the context and edge-cases are lost forever until they rear their ugly heads.
Write tests for your own peace of mind if not for anything else.
Yes, fuck typescript. Fuck anybody who uses transpilation to redefine a language. Fuck anybody who makes modules which introduce incompatibilities with the basic JS stack. Fuck anybody who uses typescript on the backend. Fuck anybody who calls themselves a developer and cannot write competent, simplistic code.
