Event description


Speaker: Shawn Weisfeld

Topic: TypeScript: Not Your Father’s JavaScript

This presentation is the second part of of a two-part series that we are having on JavaScript. This is a link to the first presentation in this series - http://usergroup.tv/videos/javascript-deep-dive.

Hate writing JavaScript? Wish it was strongly typed, scalable, and had better tool support? TypeScirpt is a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript. Any browser. Any host. Any OS. Open Source.

In this session we will introduce TypeScript and show the basics of getting started with it today, including how to leverage your existing arsenal of third party JavaScirpt libraries like jQuery.
