Event Details

TypeScript is a fairly new open-source programming language developed by Microsoft. It can be considered a super-set of ECMAScript v5 (also known as JavaScript). All ECMAScript v5 compliant programs are TypeScript programs and TypeScript compiles down to JavaScript.

JavaScript is a funky but awesome programming language. It is now considered lingua franca of the web. Building and maintaning large applications with JavaScript, however, can be a pain. JavaScript lacks many of the language features that are taken for granted in other programming languages, such as C, C++, C#, Java, et cetera. TypeScript aims at fixing this problem by extending JavaScript in a way that allows developers to build powerful applications using the JavaScript that they love but with the added typing, built-in module systems, error-checking, and strong tooling that they need.


In this presentation, Jonathan Barronville, a young computer programmer who's been developing for the web since about the age of thirteen, will give an overview on the TypeScript language and its specification. By the end of the presentation, attendees should have a good understanding of the TypeScript language and how one can make use of it to build and maintain large applications in JavaScript.

The only real prerequisite to this presentation is an understanding of JavaScript.
