Why TypeScript is a Game-Changer for Web Development

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

JavaScript has a big advantage: Reach. You can run JavaScript on the client and the server, on your phone, your PC and even on your smart watch. Unfortunately, JavaScript has disadvantages when it comes to larger project implemented by multiple developers. TypeScript was built to solve this problem by adding a language layer on top of JavaScript. With TypeScript, you can create and add types where you need them. Compiler and IDE use them for compile-time type checking, IntelliSense, refactoring support, etc. In this demo-heavy session, Rainer Stropek (Microsoft Azure MVP, Microsoft Regional Director) introduces you to the TypeScript language.

This session requires basic JavaScript knowledge but no existing TypeScript experience.
