Writing scalable JavaScript with TypeScript

Jul 28, 2017 · Pune, India

Prashant Tiwari is a full-stack software developer at Equal Experts. He has been writing JavaScript for years, but it was love at first sight when he discovered TypeScript.

His interests cover a wide range from design and typography to NLP and deep learning, and he enjoys taking on hard problems to create beautiful things.

Abstract of the Talk-

You’re probably doing something wrong if you write JavaScript for a living in 2017 and haven’t yet tried TypeScript. Whether you’re writing a back-end, front-end or a mobile app — and whether you’re using jQuery, React, Angular, Vue or your favourite framework-du-jour — TypeScript can significantly improve your development experience with its incredible tooling and refactoring support that can help you catch bugs as you type and bring sanity to managing large codebases.

In this completely hands-on session, he will take you through the amazing world of TypeScript’s language features and its rich out-of-the-box affordances such as cross-referencing and auto-completion, quick-fixes and auto-imports — experiences that developers working with traditional statically-typed languages in heavy-duty IDEs take for granted.

He will show examples of both functional and object-oriented programming in JavaScript that can benefit tremendously from TypeScript’s highly advanced type system. He will also show you how all the latest ES2015/16/17 features are natively available in TypeScript with a greatly simplified configuration compared to Babel’s.

TypeScript lets you write a much better, clean and scalable JavaScript. There’s a high probability that by the end of this talk you’re going to get completely hooked and will never want to look back!


Prior experience with JavaScript, with a general awareness of new ECMAScript features.
