TypeScript is both a language and a set of tools to generate JavaScript. It was designed by Anders Hejlsberg at Microsoft to help developers write enterprise-scale JavaScript.

Starting with an introduction to the TypeScript language, before moving on to basic concepts, each section builds on previous knowledge in an incremental and easy-to-understand way. Advanced and powerful language features are all covered, including asynchronous programming techniques, decorators, and generics.

This book explores many modern JavaScript and TypeScript frameworks side by side in order for the reader to learn their respective strengths and weaknesses. It will also thoroughly explore unit and integration testing for each framework.

Best-of-breed applications utilize well-known design patterns in order to be scalable, maintainable, and testable. This book explores some of these object-oriented techniques and patterns, and shows real-world implementations.

By the end of the book, you will have built a comprehensive, end-to-end web application to show how TypeScript language features, design patterns, and industry best practices can be brought together in a real-world scenario.

  • Learn the key features of TypeScript 3 and explore advanced language features through in-depth discussions.
  • Use TypeScript with modern frameworks including Backbone, Angular, Aurelia, React, and Node.
  • Explore TDD practices, OOP techniques, and industry best practices to create high-quality, modular, and adaptable applications.

Nathan Rozentals

Nathan Rozentals has been writing commercial software for over 23 years. Starting with COBOL on mainframes, through C, onto C++, Java and finally settling on C# and ASP.NET.

Nathan picked up TypeScript in October 2012 - a day after the 0.8.0 release - and could not put it down. In TypeScript he found a language that could bring all of the design patterns and practices he had learnt over the years - in a variety of languages - to JavaScript.

Some 6 days after the 0.8.0 release, Nathan began blogging about TypeScript; covering a variety of topics, including Unit Testing, implementing an IoC Container, and Organizing your code with AMD Modules. He knew he had hit the mark when Microsoft themselves started to reference his blog in their CodePlex discussion forums
