Microsoft’s open source language, TypeScript, is a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles into plain JavaScript. The aim is to solve many of the challenges associated with large scale JavaScript development. This talk is primarily a demo of the language – very few slides, mostly code to demonstrate what TypeScript can do for you.
