Building a Large Scale JavaScript Application in TypeScript

Sign in to queue

Description

How can you survive a project that uses JavaScript massively on both the client and the server using node.js? The project is about on-line development components, such as the TypeScript playground (http://www.typescriptlang.org/Playground/) or Visual Studio Online “Monaco”, which enables users to edit Azure Web Sites online. We had an existing large JavaScript code base and we wanted to give TypeScript a try. Today the project is one of the largest TypeScript code bases inside Microsoft with more than 200k lines of TypeScript in production. This session gives a quick introduction into TypeScript and then takes a deep look at how TypeScript and other technologies were used to successfully scale up a large JavaScript project that ships in some of Microsoft’s biggest products and services.
