JavaScript frequently confuses developers with its odd language rules and inconsistent approach to various aspects of the language. TypeScript is an attempt to clean up the language; simplifying it and creating an easier to understand syntax. But that compiles down to native JavaScript for widespread use in the browser (and anywhere else JavaScript is expected). In this session, you'll go over the syntax and semantics of TypeScript, how to use it in a Web application, why it makes the code and more.

You will learn:

  • About TypeScript syntax
  • How TypeScript relates to JavaScript semantics
  • How to incorporate TypeScript into a JavaScript toolchain
