TypeScript has seen enormous growth over the past year, and it is used to build several key frameworks like Angular and Ionic. In this talk, Doris demonstrates how TypeScript enables you to leverage features from the current and future of JavaScript while increasing the productivity of JavaScript development.

This session covers some of the latest features of TypeScript, including future ECMAScript proposals, support for Angular and React/JSX, and the state of the art type system capabilities. We'll see how working and creating things in JavaScript is more productive and fun with TypeScript.
