Intro to TypeScript


Hello JS'ers! To kick off 2018, we'll have Jeremy Likness to give us an introduction to TypeScript.

Intro to TypeScript for JavaScript Developers

A desktop engineer that works at Slack recently described his experience with TypeScript as "how he learned to stop worrying and trust the compiler." Companies that switch to TypeScript discover previously hidden bugs, see accelerated delivery, experience reduction of defect rates and increase their trust in code. Learn how to apply these powerful benefits to JavaScript development.

Jeremy walks through the basics of TypeScript, then applies them to a simple JavaScript project.
