Example in TypeScript:
let sampleVar: string = "text"; sampleVar = 123; // This results in a compile-time error in TypeScript
TypeScript’s type system, while seemingly a minor adjustment, can have a profound impact on code maintainability and consistency. The enforcement of types ensures fewer runtime errors and better code quality.

Tools and Workflows: The TypeScript transpilation process requires a build step, often integrated into development workflows using tools like Webpack or Parcel. These tools can combine TypeScript transpilation with other tasks, such as bundling and minifying, to optimize the code for production.
