Abstract

TypeScript is Microsoft's entry into the JavaScript pre-compiler space. As a javaScript superset, TypeScript compiles to JavaScript and introduces concepts such as strong typing, classes, modules, constructors, namespaces and more to JavaScript development. In this session we will discuss the use cases for TypeScript and investigate the tooling around it as we dig into the fundamentals of this new language.
