About the subject

Building on the familiar JavaScript syntax and structures, TypeScript provides a strong type system and inline error flagging. With the precision types added to your code, you’ll more easily take advantage of best practices like code refactoring and type annotations. Since TypeScript compiles to clean and simple JavaScript code, you can confidently run your TypeScript apps on any browser. TypeScript is fully interoperable with all JavaScript libraries, so new and evolving JavaScript features are at your fingertips.

About the video

Introduction to TypeScript teaches you everything you need to know to get started writing awesome web apps with TypeScript. First, you’ll review the relevant ECMAScript foundations that will enhance your first steps down the TypeScript road. Then, after setting up your programming environment, you’ll explore primitive data types like Boolean, numbers, and strings, as well as non-primitive data types like arrays, tuples, and enums. Your next stop will be object-oriented programming concepts including interfaces, classes, access modifiers, and abstract methods.

As you work through this course, you’ll discover generics and how to use them, and progress further into typings, including how to apply them to third-party libraries,. You’ll also learn to efficiently transpile TypeScript to JavaScript with and without the open-source module bundler Webpack. With the 45 comprehensive videos in this course, you’ll have a rock-solid foundation and a collection of instantly-useful skills for building strong, safe, web apps!
