Introduction to TypeScript: application-scale JavaScript

Room:

Level:
Beginner

Speakers: Matt Harrington

TypeScript is a strict superset of JavaScript which adds support for classes, modules, lambda expressions, and optional static typing. It's open source under the Apache 2.0 license. It's supported on any platform and compiles to standard JavaScript for use in any browser. You can also use any existing JavaScript library. This helps you write larger JavaScript apps with fewer errors. It also opens the door to great tooling. Come learn the basics of TypeScript. You'll leave with at least one way TypeScript can help you with your daily use of JavaScript. Learn more at http://www.typescriptlang.org.
