With the growing popularity of libraries like Angular 2/4, its underlying language –TypeScript– is also growing quickly in popularity. In this session Jonathon Tower will give you much more than just a basic introduction to the language and its syntax and constructs–he’ll give you the reasons why you should care from a software engineering perspective. We’ll also take a look at the tooling that comes with TypeScript and how it can help you incorporate it into your next JavaScript project.
