TypeScript: Making JavaScript Tolerable

Rokkincat 229 East Wisconsin Avenue Suite #1200, Milwaukee, WI 53202 (map)

JavaScript has changed the world as we know it. It's applications are growing both in popularity and size. It is time that we give this language the respect it deserves. By leveraging TypeScript's type-system, your large JavaScript application code will be developed faster with fewer type-related bugs and allow for easier refactoring.

TypeScript is a superset of JavaScript that scales. Allow me to show you why I believe TypeScript makes JavaScript tolerable. Discover how TypeScript is backwards compatible to ES3, yet lets developers use the latest in the ECMAScript standards today. Become the most productive JavaScript developer you can by relying on TypeScript.
