Not bad for begginers, but so oriented to Visual Studio

About Me Developer
Focus On Visual Studio
Comments about oreilly TypeScript Essentials:
The first chapters are ok, you can learn about the language and some particulars, but the second part you need a lot of the Visual Studio; no MS users may find them-self limited for that reason.
The Canvas example is good, but someone might think it is so much complex since the chapter is more focus on explaining how the canvas works, instead of how to achieve something in the language (at the end, the goal is to learn TS instead of canvas).
In general, the book is ok but I was expecting more.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
