TypeScript - An Introduction
TypeScript is a new language from Microsoft that represents a super-set of JavaScript. What TypeScript adds is what was described by Anders Hejlsberg as the "application scale". In this talk, we'll cover how TypeScript brings this power by adding support for:
• Object Oriented concepts such as classes, interfaces, inheritance, encapsulation, etc.
• Support for modules and class-per-file
• Lambda or arrow functions
• strong typing

As yet, TypeScript is a young effort and can be frustrating to work with in some situations. To help smooth over these rough edges, this talk will also cover:
• Getting started
• Manipulating the project files, when needed, to get full TypeScript support when using incorrect or incomplete project templates.
• Adding command line arguments to compiler calls
• debugging tips

    Had a good time at the meeting, a very brief overview but informative nonetheless. I was surprised with the drawing at the end for some great dev books (I even won a BizTalk 2010 book!

    As always, thanks for the meeting. Good job by Mitch, and thanks for the food, Mark. If anyone is interested, I wrote a brief TypeScript entry on my blog.

    Mitch did a great overview. I left with the understanding of what TS was, how it can be used and leveraged in existing applications.
