As we look back at the developer population data collected and published in the most recent BlueOptima Global Benchmark (BGB) Report, one key trend we’ve found that is worth paying close attention to is the rise in the use of TypeScript.
What Is TypeScript?
Why Is TypeScript On The Rise?

How Will Typescript Affect Productivity On Development Teams?
A 2020 report by Monterail found that, from a business perspective, Typescript contributes to a higher level of efficiency as it has been found to reduce development time.
“Thanks to a 15% reduction in bugs across the board, most developers observe a corresponding reduction in development time, which, in turn, gives them more time to work on application logic and fix errors that can be detrimental to in-app performance and usability. TypeScript’s compiler also helps shorten the QA and testing process in later stages of development.”
It makes sense, then, that the adoption of TypeScript is happening so rapidly. Hiring managers in need of enterprise-level software developers should keep an eye on the rise of TypeScript as more developers— frontend, backend and full-stack —are adding this tool to their stack.
*A note about the BlueOptima Global Benchmark Q4 2020 Global Report:
The BlueOptima Global Benchmark (BGB) Report is published quarterly. Each report contains data collected over the 12 months prior to publishing. Our most recent BGB compares the Q3 2020 (01-10-2019 to 30-09-2020) data benchmarked with the Q4 2020 (01-01-2020 to 31-12-2020) findings. The data employed in this analysis represents an approximated 2% sampling of the global enterprise software developer population.
