Dynamic typing in JavaScript helps you develop more productively by encoding the “shape” of your code. In the field of web front-ends, React continues generating tremendous interest and its Flow typing system provides static analysis. However, TypeScript has become very popular in the JavaScript space. It supports React, has broad tooling, and deep support from Microsoft and Google.

In this session, we look at how an advanced IDE like WebStorm can put TypeScript's dynamic typing to work.

In particular:

  • See how dynamic typing can help in React applications by gradually building a TodoMVC application backed by Firebase
  • Use WebStorm’s TypeScript/JavaScript toolchain features (intelligent completion, refactoring, Node debugger, npm run scripts, etc.) and React support (template syntax, etc.) to implement the TodoMVC features
