But first, meet your presenter...

Hi!

Yes, that's me with a monkey...

If you want to see TypeScript in action...

What is TypeScript?

TypeScript is a typed superset of Javascript that compiles into plain, idiomatic Javascript

Cool, but what does that even mean?

  • TypeScript compiles into readable Javascript
  • Valid Javascript === valid TypeScript
  • TypeScript adds optional static typing
  • It brings together the best of typed languages and the dynamic nature of JS
  • It prevents many classes of issues before runtime

I'm not here to address myths around TypeScript

I covered that already in my previous talk,
TypeScript Demystified

I'm here to show you how to work in TypeScript!

And Angular 2 with ASP.NET (but that's beside the point)

That's it for slides!

Time to see TypeScript in action!

Getting Started

Download Visual Studio Code

Cross-platform. Easy, simple, extensible, multiple language support, debugging, etc.

or Download VS Community 2015

Windows-only. More metal, cross-platform SDKs, etc.

Read the Tutorials

Play with Samples
