Why you should start using TypeScript ASAP + Building Apps with TypeScript

Why you should start using TypeScript ASAP
The title says it all :)

By Alex Pope, Senior Software Developer at Microsoft 

Building Apps with TypeScript
So you've heard about TypeScript before, maybe even have written a line or two. But how does it work out in practice? We'll look at how to build apps with TypeScript and talk about some of the good and bad things that come along with it, as well as how to resolve them.

    So.. the day I figure out how to set up Gulp to compile both SASS and TS without TS giving me errors about stuff from node_modules (even if I try to exclude it) I will be happy :p

    TS alone? Fine, easy tsc build task in VS Code.

    TS+SASS? gulp.. grunt.. 😞😞😞😞

    Sometimes I feel like some of these build tools are just a royal pain in the everywhere.. unless you have used them day in and out for the last decade and know all the magic spells. Build tools are both cures and curses.

      Aldri vært borti plovr, men kan ikke si det frister heller all den tid det tilsynelatedene ligner på Grunt med JSON-config. Da foretrekker jeg Gulp, som jeg for øvrig ikke har noen ting imot.

      I fail to see how webpack would address this, as I understand that more of a bunding-it-all-once-it'­s-compiled thing?

      My problem was that running "tsc" works just fine, but all the gulp wrappers I could find just ignored my tsconfig.json even when I told them to use it, and even ignored the exclude filters when I specified them manually.

    I did not make it :-( Any slides? I use typescript with angularjs; quite limited use however. How does it compare to building with swift? Any benchmarks?

    Two very informative talks. I hope to use TypeScript soon. Seems to fit in well with the other tools I'm already using.
