As Any

any is a special type in TypeScript that represents a value of any type. When a value is declared with the any type, the compiler will not perform any type checks or type inference on that value.

For example:

let anyValue: any = 42;

// we can assign any value to anyValue, regardless of its type
anyValue = 'Hello, world!';
anyValue = true;
