    I do not get javascript intellisense after installing the node modules in visual studio code for Mac. As shown in the video at 50:51. Is this a preview feature? i have visual studio code version 1.12.1 installed and typescript version 2.3.2

    Typescript is truly an amazing tool, It made the javascript development so much simpler. All these frameworks will eventually fade out, but typescript will be around for a very long time.

    Typescript is awesome! But why does it have so many issues on Github (2062 at the moment)?

    Nice.

    I wonder if Anders knows that VS Code comes with an integrated terminal now?
