TypeScript For Smashing People

TypeScript has been one of the most hyped technologies in 2019. Annoyingly hyped for some. Now in 2020, let’s look beyond the hype. Let’s find out what type-checking has in store for us people of the web.

First and foremost, TypeScript is tooling for people who write JavaScript. Its goal: helping developers getting more information about their and other people’s code. When working for the web, we inevitably have to deal with JavaScript. So why not use excellent tooling to make some challenges a lot easier?

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What TypeScript actually is.
  • About the strong relationship between TypeScript and JavaScript.
  • How to use TypeScript without fully committing to it.
  • The strategy of applying homeopathic TypeScript.
  • TypeScript’s impact on using JSX based frameworks like React.
