Just a comment about TypeScript vs. JavaScript. Probably the big thing that
writing in TypeScript brings is defined types. So if you make an error such
as assigning a number to a string variable, TypeScript will catch the error
whereas JavaScript won't until run-time. Also, TypeScript compiles to
native JavaScript, so in a sense you're writing traditional JS but with a
few bells and whistles added.

While we're on the subject, there's also a library called fastJSON
available here <http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/159450/fastJSON>.
