JavaScript is the language for Web development, but it's not the only way to write code in Web applications. TypeScript is a language that emits JavaScript, but provides constructs and features currently missing in JavaScript. In this session, you'll see what TypeScript is, how it works, and why you should consider using it on future Web projects.

You will learn:

  • Why TypeScript is relevant for Web developers
  • Get a tour of the TypeScript language
  • How TypeScript integrates with web applications in Visual Studio
