Overview

TypeScript Revealed by Dan Maharry

TypeScript Revealed is a quick 100-page guide to Anders Hejlsberg's new take on JavaScript. With this brief, fast-paced introduction to TypeScript, .NET, Web and Windows 8 application developers who are already familiar with JavaScript will easily get up to speed with TypeScript and decide whether or not to start incorporating it into their own development.

TypeScript is ‘JavaScript for Application-scale development’; a superset of JavaScript that brings to it an additional object-oriented-like syntax familiar to .NET programmers that compiles down into simple, clean JavaScript that any browser can run today. It’s also tied to the next version of the JavaScript standard, which means that TypeScript will continue to evolve over time to keep in step with that standard and with the capabilities of the engines that will execute JavaScript applications.

If you are a .NET developer, Web designer or developer, or a programmer with a keen interest in scalable applications, TypeScript Revealed is a great way to get started with the language, learn how it compiles into JavaScript, and how easy it is to learn from a .NET/Java developer's perspective.

  • Takes you through the language features in Typescript additional to those in JavaScript
  • Describes the tooling and community support for TypeScript development
  • Discusses how TypeScript can be included in ASP.NET, Windows 8, and node.js application development projects.
What you’ll learn
  • Why you should care about TypeScript
  • What it does and what it doesn't do
  • The current toolset and levels of support
  • The new syntax features of TypeScript
  • How to build your own TypeScript declaration files
  • How to incorporate TypeScript into your projects
Who this book is for

TypeScript Revealed is aimed at the early adopter developer who is already familiar with Microsoft tools and .NET and/or JavaScript development that wants a flavor of TypeScript distilled, culled, and organized in one place.

Unless you like not being able to read the end of a line of code when you're trying to learn a new programming language. There is no way to zoom out and see the rest of a given statement either. Do yourself a favor and go buy the real book if you ever want to actually see the whole line of code (this happens constantly throughout the nook version of this book).
