"TypeScript: The Good Parts" with Mark Rendle
Location: BlogsDotNetDevNet Meetings    
Posted by: host Friday, October 05, 2012 12:10 AM

When: Tuesday 22nd January 2013, doors open 6:00pm, meeting starts 6:30pm

Where: UWE (University of the West of England), Frenchay, Bristol (see FAQ for directions and a map) - Room 2q49

What: TypeScript: The Good Parts, "TypeScript is a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript."

Who: Mark Rendle, author of Simple.Data, MVP, technologist, fabulous speaker

Why: Because TypeScript is an open standard. It implements ECMAScript 6 features at least a year before ECMAScript 6 will be released. Also because TypeScript is what CoffeeScript should have been - an extension to JavaScript not a replacement to JavaScript. Also because Mark is a fabulous speaker - lots of content brilliantly delivered. This will be a treat.

How do I sign up for this meeting: Log in to the site, go to the Meetings page and on the top right hand side you will see a box "Register For A Meeting". Select the month in the drop down and then click on the Register link.

In this talk, I'll look at what that means, both as a technical description and to you as a developer, and particularly as a member of a development team.


* The language, or the extra syntax TypeScript adds to JavaScript;
* TypeScript tooling for Visual Studio;
* TypeScript in Windows 8 Store apps;
* Using TypeScript outside Visual Studio and .NET;
* A look at the TypeScript ecosystem that is already appearing;
* Appendix A: The Bad Parts

If you're working on a JavaScript project of any real size or scope, you owe it to yourself to at least evaluate TypeScript and see what it can offer your team. This talk will get you started.

Mark is the creator of the Simple.Data framework.

Mark's career in software design and development spans three decades and more programming languages than he cares to remember. C# has been his favourite language pretty much since the first public beta, when you had to write the code in a text editor and compile it on the command line.
