Types and tests can both be leveraged to improve code quality in JavaScript applications. Unfortunately, both approaches tend to increase initial development time - although they save time and money in the long run. This lightning talk explains why, given tight development deadlines, tests give a better return on investment than types. Please note, this talk is NOT intended to discredit types, TypeScript, or other similar technologies.

Colin Ihrig is a member of the Node.js Technical Steering Committee, a libuv collaborator, and a hapi.js core team member.
