Learn a Language: Typescript


Javascript is everywhere! Whether you are building a web front-end, a hybrid mobile application or a lean back-end with NodeJS, you can’t get around Javascript. NPM repositories contain more libraries than Nuget or Maven Repo’s.

But at the same time Javascript can be a very difficult language to write your software in. It is not object oriented, it is weakly typed and it has lot of strange and difficult to understand language constructs. You can work around these limitations, but this takes a lot of experience and discipline from the team. Especially if you have experience in an object oriented environment.

Enter Typescript. Typescript is a new scripting language based on ECMA 6. It will give you true object orientation, strong typing and built in support for modules with AMD, CommonJS or ES6 modules.

And it compiles to just JavaScript so it runs in any browser or on any platform that supports Javascript.

In this meetup we will deep dive into Typescript. You will learn a new language with presentation, code, demo’s and exercises.
