The Latest on TypeScript

A new version of TypeScript is released about every three months. This means that new features—features that can make your applications more reliable and you more productive—are coming at you at a rapid pace. It’s difficult to know what you need to pay attention to and what you can ignore.

We’re here to help!

In this talk, Ken and James will highlight and demo some of the great TypeScript features that have been released in the last year. So join us for the latest on TypeScript!

Learn about improvements in...

ES6/ES++ support
