This book is written for software engineers who want to become more productive developing web or standalone apps. Both authors are practitioners, and we wrote this book for practitioners. Not only do we explain the syntax of the language using basic code samples, but we also develop multiple apps that show how you can use TypeScript with popular libraries and frameworks.
While working on this book, we ran workshops using the code samples from the book, giving us early feedback about the book’s content. We really hope that you’ll enjoy the process of learning TypeScript with this book.
This book is divided into two parts. In part 1, we cover various syntax elements of TypeScript using small code snippets for illustration. In part 2, we apply TypeScript in several versions of a blockchain app. If your goal is to quickly learn TypeScript’s syntax and tooling, part 1 of this book is all you need.
