Abstract

Come learn to build next generation web applications using the most modern tools: Angular and TypeScript.

Angular 2.0 will be built using the TypeScript language. It will embrace TypeScript's idioms for working with immersive web experiences in larger applications.

You can get those same benefits by working with TypeScript and Angular together. In this session, you'll learn how Angular and TypeScript work together to create single page applications. You'll see how you can leverage the features of ECMAScript 6, and still support today's browsers. You'll see how adopting TypeScript can be as easy as changing the extensions on your .js files. How you use the TypeScript features is completely in your control.

If time permits, and pre-release builds cooperate, we’ll look at Angular 2.0 and TypeScript 2.0 together.

Even if you are not ready to move to these tools yet, learn what's in store in the future.
