David Mann[MVP]-TypeScript­, A New Approach to JavaScript for SP 2013 Apps

With the new App model in SharePoint, JavaScript is coming to the forefront of many developers’ attention.  Unfortunately, too many managed code developers are woefully behind the curve in learning this not-so-new technology.  This session will introduce TypeScript - Microsoft's recently announced open-source programming language designed from the ground up to make it easier for managed code developers to use JavaScript to build large-scale, real world applications.   We’ll explore how TypeScript can be used to make the JavaScript in our SharePoint Apps better, faster, easier to write and more reliable.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
