User Group - Your JavaScript Needs Types

Aug 28, 2017 · Maryland Heights, United States of America


What’s one thing Slack, Facebook, and Google have in common? They’ve all embraced types in their JavaScript! Typed JavaScript is meeting lots of resistance from folks who don’t believe their JavaScript needs it, but many projects are transitioning to type systems such as TypeScript or Flow for better long-term maintainability and bug reduction.

In this session, Spencer will break down why types in your JavaScript will make you a better JS developer. We’ll explore the benefits brought on by typed JavaScript, such as better tooling and ease of refactoring. Finally, we’ll discuss how you can introduce typing to your JavaScript in projects small to large, new and old.

Hi, my name is Spencer Schneidenbach. I'm a software engineer and Microsoft MVP in the St. Louis area who specializes in ASP.NET, C#, JavaScript, and AngularJS 1/2. I’m passionate about software engineering and about sharing my knowledge with the community. Besides blogging, I also speak regularly at conferences and user groups around the country.

I currently work as the Principal and owner of Aviron Software, building awesome cloud- and web-based software for our clients.

I also maintain an active GitHub account where I publish all of the code I write about, as well as my Nuget packages.

I've been recognized as an OzCode Magician for helping advance the amazing OzCode Visual Studio extension, which can be used to greatly enhance your debugging experience!

While not working on software projects, I enjoy reading, blogging, and spending time with my two kids and wife.
