TypeScript Quickly MEAP V09 cover


Thank you for purchasing the first MEAP for TypeScript Quickly!

According to the latest issue of the reputable ThoughtWork's Technology Radar (see, "TypeScript is a carefully considered language and its consistently improving tools and IDE support continues to impress us. With a good repository of TypeScript-type definitions, we benefit from all the rich JavaScript libraries while gaining type safety." Surveys on Stackoverflow consistently show that TypeScript is one of the most loved languages, and this book is about TypeScript.

We use this language at work and write this book for developers who want to become more productive with developing apps that will run in the browsers’ or standalone JavaScript engines. We expect the reader to know the basics of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (based on ECMAScript 5 spec).

We really like TypeScript for allowing us to produce executable JavaScript code faster. And the chances of getting runtime errors are substantially lower compared to the code that was originally written in JavaScript.

This book is divided into two parts. In Part 1, we cover various syntax elements of TypeScript using small code snippets for illustration. Part 2 (starts from chapter 8) is a collection of various apps written in TypeScript.
