Spend A Full Day Immersed in Production TypeScript with Mike North

Workshop Details

This hands-on workship is designed to take developers from "I can write a little TypeScript" to "I'm ready to use it at work, with confidence". Mike will go beyond the basics of the language and use a meaningful project to teach the lessons learned he's from years of production experience. Those who have completed this workshops should feel ready to create a library or app, knowing that they're building, testing, coding and maintaing it the same way a deep expert would.
