Description

You might be wondering what is TypeScript. Is it yet another programming language I need to learn? Another set of API’s and documents to read through? Yes and no. It is a superset of the programming language JavaScript. What does that mean? Well, as a “superset” it means everything that you love (or hate) about JavaScript is still there but now you have the ability to create classes, modules and interfaces to help build your large scale applications and components.

Don’t worry about compatibility since at the end of the day it compiles down to simple JavaScript. What is also cool is you can start using TypeScript immediately. If you know JavaScript, you know TypeScript. Your developers and your apps can take full advantage right now and incorporate current JavaScript libraries if needed.
