This week's book giveaway is in the Agile and Other Processes forum. We're giving away four copies of Real-World Software Development: A Project-Driven Guide to Fundamentals in Java and have Dr. Raoul-Gabriel Urma & Richard Warburton on-line! See this thread for details.
I've heard that TypeScript removes the need for Babel to build JS code that runs in IE11. Is that correct? Are there any gotchas? If so how comprehensive are the documented caveats? How extensive are the polyfills? For example, Canvas Ellipse for IE11 or ResizeObserver for IE11 and Safari 13? Does TypeScript support bare module imports? Does TypeScript require (or recommend) tools such as Rollup.js and WebPack?
