This structure has been serving us really really well by enforcing consistency, promoting SCAM, prevent circular dependencies, and minimize mental overhead of "where to put what"
Because # in URLs starts a fragment identifier. So, in order to make that work, write %23 instead of #, that is the value of escaped # character.
The main difference between unknown and any is that unknown is much less permissive than any: we have to do some form of checking before performing most operations on values of type unknown, whereas we don't have to do any checks before performing operations on values of type any.

Have you ever do console.log an object and wondering how can copy the object over?
Prefer async/await to raw Promise when possible. They produce more concise, straightforward code and eliminate whole classes of errors.
Should you use type or interface? For complex types, you have no choice: you need to use a type alias. But what about the simpler object types that can be represented either way? To answer this question, you should consider consistency and augmentation. Are you working in a codebase that consistently uses interface? Then stick with interface. Does it use type? Then use type.
My sixth tutorial will focus on another interesting feature - a markdown text editor
Consider applying type annotations to entire function expressions, rather than to their parameters and return type. If you're writing the same type signature repeatedly, factor out a function type.

In short, a closure is not the function that is returned in another function. A closure is a combination of a function bundled together (enclosed) with references to its surrounding state (the lexical environment). In other words, a closure gives you access to an outer function’s scope from an inner function
If you have multiple concrete classes that inherit from the same base class, or implement the same interface. You should consider using visitor pattern. It will save you from dozens of if-else block or switch/case and typecasting

In the use case of search, we don't want to hit the server endpoint every time user presses a key, it should flood them with a storm of HTTP requests. Basically, we only want to hit it once the user has stopped typing after sometimes (for instance 300ms) instead of with every keystroke.
