While looking at the contents of the book "TypeScript Quickly", a note took my attention which said, "I’ve seen the future and it is TypeScript". Does that mean that TypeScript can even run on Back-end server where it can perform transactions? Is the note trying to say that there shall be a common programming language that shall run on front-end as well as back-end and that developers shall have only one common programming language viz. TypeScript? If that's true, please explain how is this possible?
Also, the creator of Node.js works on another server called Deno, which is a runtime for TypeScript so you don't even need to compile the code (see https://deno.land/std/manual.md).

This might start a new revolution in programming industry where there shall be one language for front-end as well as back-end. Frameworks need to be developed though which offer features like dependency injection and persistence. Indeed a long way to go...
I use NodeJS for my quick-and-dirty projects. But I still prefer Java for the "heavy lifting" stuff.
