SharePoint 2013 brings a radical shift towards HTML5 and JavaScript development, however, JavaScript was never designed for large scale development efforts. TypeScript is a language that is designed to address the large-project concerns of JavaScript. TypeScript compiles down to JavaScript and therefore can be used in any development process that uses JavaScript. In this session you’ll see how to leverage TypeScript to create large-scale client applications.

You will learn:

  • Learn how TypeScript works
  • Identify how to use TypeScript in a SharePoint project
  • Discover debugging with TypeScript
