#16 - React and TypeScript with Martin Hochel

For the start of season 3 I met with Martin Hochel, a developer from Prague who has a strong affinity for static types. Combining his love for TypeScript and his day to day work as a front-end developer, he started contributing to the React type definitions for TypeScript, used by 1.7 million people.
With Martin we find out the biggest challenges when using React along with TypeScript, its benefits, and how it feels to break builds for million of users.
