TypeScript 3 Fundamentals, v2

Some Key Takeaways!

By coding along with us in the Workshop, you'll:

  • Understand how TypeScript looks at your code, and use that knowledge to be maximally descriptive and type-safe, with minimal effort
  • Incrementally write ambient type information to layer on top of a JavaScript library
  • Get the most out of a modern VSCode + TypeScript development environment
  • Work with advanced concepts like conditional and mapped types, and methodically debug any mistakes you may encounter

Workshop Details

TypeScript is exploding in popularity, as more and more developers realize how improved error checking and in-editor documentation supercharges their workflow. In this advanced workshop, we'll build up an understanding of how TypeScript looks at your code, and use that as a foundation to discuss what's possible with classes, interfaces, and more.

We'll take a close look at declaration files, which can work hand-in-hand with JavaScript files to provide the missing type information. We'll write some tests for our types, and even walk through the process of making a fix to the community DefinitelyTyped types.

TypeScript isn't just a great programming language, it's an amazing tool for analyzing code in general. We'll take a look at the TypeScript compiler API, and use it to build a simple documentation tool, based on the same information you see in Visual Studio Code tooltips!

Is This Workshop for Me?


This course is ideal for *experienced* JavaScript developers who wish to learn how TypeScript can make their code more robust, performant and manageable. Full-stack developers who already think in terms of strong types will find this course even more useful, in that they’ll finally be able to apply this thinking in a language that targets Node.js and browsers.

Any Prerequisites?

  • Students should be very familiar with JavaScript concepts like variables, functions, Classes, async/await and ES2015 modules.
