In Detail

TypeScript is an open source and cross-platform typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript that runs in any browser or any host. It allows developers to use the future versions of JavaScript (ECMAScript 6 and 7) today. TypeScript adds optional static types, classes, and modules to JavaScript, to enable great tooling and better structuring of large JavaScript applications.

This book is a step-by-step guide that will get you started with TypeScript with the help of practical examples. You start off by understanding the basics of TypeScript. Next, automation tools like Grunt are explained followed by a detailed description of function, generics, callbacks and promises. After this, object-oriented features and the memory management functionality of TypeScript are explained. At the end of this book, you will have learned enough to implement all the concepts and build a single page application from scratch.

Style and approach

This is a step-by-step guide that covers the fundamentals of TypeScript with practical examples. Each chapter introduces a set of TypeScript language features and leads the readers toward the development of a real-world application.

Comments about oreilly Learning TypeScript:

The book is great if you want to learn how to program web application. It really describe step by step how to: write code, debug, test, install this and that, use this program, use that tool ... .

But someone who already know this things and he/she already read stuff about JavaScript, OOP, Node.js, Test units, ES6 ... the book will be a big disappointment.

I bought book to learn TypeScript and get how to write applications for dummies.
