Thanks. You do make some valid points and would like to pick your brain a bit further :-)
a) What about organisation? Did you feel like it easier to work on a team and share code? 
b) Did you had any problems with the compiled code?

Hello! So sorry I didn't write back. And thank you lordhanson - I didn't know that, but it makes perfect sense. To answer your question, coffee:

a) I did, yes, as statically typed code is much easier to reason about. TypeScript is naturally a little more verbose than plain JavaScript, but what it lacks in brevity it more than makes up for with clarity.

b) Nope, no problems; I use Browserify a lot so tsify was a natural choice of tooling for me. But there are many options available to support whatever you're using to compile modules.

I may well end up using TS exclusively going forward, especially due to the quality of code produced using TS + ES6. It's a Microsoft-backed project and seems it's around to stay, so my conclusion is that it's well worth taking it up if it piques your curiosity sufficiently after one or two tries.
