DevNation 2015 - Sander Mak - Typescript: Coding javascript without the pain

Is your JavaScript growing out of control? Would you like to add some class to your client-side development? With TypeScript you can. TypeScript is an optionally typed superset of JavaScript. It adds classes, interfaces, and other object-oriented constructs familiar to Java developers. And it all compiles down to regular JavaScript for consumption by any JS runtime. In this session, we’ll introduce TypeScript from the perspective of Java developers who also write JavaScript on the client-side. We’ll use examples and live coding to show you the power of this upcoming language. You’ll see that it's more modular, less error-prone, and more fun to code in TypeScript.
