TypeScript: Intro & Simple Windows 8 App


Microsoft created TypeScript as a language for application-scale JavaScript development. TypeScript is a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript. TypeScript introduces concepts such as strong typing, classes, modules, constructors, namespaces and more. It allows you to think in C#, but code in JavaScript.

In this session, we will cover the basics, show off how and what TypeScript does, show some basic examples and create a very simple Windows 8 App using TypScript. This will primarily be a demo session.
