Kevin Grossnicklaus
Using Microsoft’s TypeScript

Have you heard of TypeScript as a means of writing better JavaScript? TypeScript is a superset of JavaScript and compiles directly down to plain old JavaScript. This talk will introduce attendees to the power of using the TypeScript language and tooling within the Microsoft Visual Studio ecosystem (and discuss other tools that easily support TypeScript). We will demonstrate how TypeScript brings strong typing, full object oriented support, compile-time error checking, and a myriad of other powerful language features to your large JavaScript projects. Google’s Angular team even used TypeScript to build Angular 2.0, so learning TypeScript will put your team in a better position to quickly take advantage of Angular 2.0.

Kevin is the President of a St. Louis-based consulting firm ArchitectNow. He and his team spend their days developing great software and brainstorming the next great app ideas. Kevin has been recognized as a Microsoft MVP for the past five years and has just been recognized as an ASPInsider.
