TypeScript 2.0 and Failing Sooner


TypeScript adds optional static typing and “future JavaScript” transpilation, with the recent 2.0 version adding many features for convenient usage and large-scale projects. In this session we show how TypeScript 2.0, alongside tooling, can boost your productivity:

  • Catch errors early by letting your tooling help you “fail sooner"

  • Encode the producer-consumer contract in a lightweight, executable format

  • Develop web frontend apps with the latest JavaScript features

In this talk, we’ll show TypeScript with WebStorm, a modern IDE that puts TypeScript to work, in the context of an Angular 2 application.
