Meetup starts at 6:30pm with 30 minutes of social time. Beginning at 7pm, Second Street's Kerrick Long will present Intro To TypeScript:

TypeScript is a language created by Microsoft that adds static typing to JavaScript. Unlike many other compile-to-JS languages, TypeScript is a superset of JavaScript, so it’s really easy to sprinkle into your existing JS to increase efficiency, reduce bugs, and help your code add become more maintainable. Learn how to start getting value from this open source language today!

Starting about 8:15pm, we'll move into a hacking session to experiment with the material that's been presented, and with JavaScript, browsers, and node.js in general.

Complimentary beer (21+ only), sodas, and pizza will be provided by this month's food sponsor, Second Street ( Come hungry, come thirsty, bring your laptop, and be ready to code!
