Description

Over the last few years, JavaScript has solidified itself as the universal language of the Web. All attempts to change this, like Flash and Silverlight, have failed. So you might as well accept that if you are going to be working with anything related to the internet, it is highly likely that you will be using JavaScript; at least for the foreseeable future. And even if you ignore the browser and stay on the server, projects like Node.js is gaining popularity and putting JavaScript there as well. Unfortunately, JavaScript is not the easiest language to learn and understand. It is full of awesome features and some really bad ones. And being as flexible as it is, tooling has a hard time keeping up. And this is where TypeScript comes in. TypeScript is a superset to JavaScript that tries to solve a lot of these problems, and make the code more structured, and less error prone. And it also offers tooling support in a way that JavaScript just can't. So why not join this session and get an introduction to TypeScript, and see what it can do for you?

You will learn:

  • The benefits of using TypeScript over JavaScript
  • How having static types removes a lot of the problems with building large applications using JavaScript
  • How much easier it is to build front-end applications when you get working IntelliSense

    Will this session be available to rewatch. I caught most of the concepts presented but would like to rewatch on some of the more complex items. Overall a great session though.

    Microsoft it doesn't have to be that way!!! Silverlight was a great product! Plz bring it back or a suitable replacement. JS is a ball and chain around the internet, it is a frontier of great opportunity! Microsoft throw your best talent at a JS replacement and kill it forever. Thanks.

    I think it did not work initially because you have not saved the index.html file in VS code. But nice Session.
