Typescript : The Good Parts - Mark Rendle

"TypeScript is a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript."

In this talk, I'll look at what that means, both as a technical description and to you as a developer, and particularly as a member of a development team.

Covering:

  • The language, or the extra syntax TypeScript adds to JavaScript;
  • TypeScript tooling for Visual Studio;
  • TypeScript in Windows 8 Store apps;
  • Using TypeScript outside Visual Studio and .NET;
  • A look at the TypeScript ecosystem that is already appearing;
  • Appendix A: The Bad Parts


If you're working on a JavaScript project of any real size or scope, you owe it to yourself to at least evaluate TypeScript and see what it can offer your team. This talk will get you started.

    Amazing presentation. The first thing I did after the meetup, even before take dinner, was to find an Eclipse plugin for Typescript. And found it! http://marketplace.eclipse.org/content/typescript#.UioPtkl1Wnw
