Book Description

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. 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 and the new features of TypeScript 2.x. Next, you will learn to automate your development workflow with tools such as Grunt. Following this, you will be explained in detail about function, generics, and callbacks. Post this, object-oriented features and the memory management functionality of TypeScript are explained in detail. Going forward, you will be introduced to Functional Programming with TypeScript and will delve into Asynchronous programming principles. Finally, you will be introduced to the performance parameters and will learn to test your application.

By the end of this book, you will have learned enough to implement all the concepts with the latest features of TypeScript to build a single page application from scratch.
