About

Most people know TypeScript from Angular 2+. It's the language you must use there, right? It's more than that! Learn what TypeScript is, why it really is a powerful addition to JavaScript, what its features are, and how to use it! And while doing so, also understand what you're doing in your Angular code.

This course takes you from the very basics and its most important feature (Types!) to a point where you're able to use TypeScript in any of your projects—ReactJS projects included! As TypeScript is developed by Microsoft and used a lot by Angular 2+ (Google), it's here to stay. Gain an edge today and be amongst the first to really understand TypeScript!

A Journey into the Future - As TypeScript code can be compiled to ES5, you'll be amazed by the many next-gen features you can start using today. ES6 features such as destructuring or arrow functions, decorators, generics and interfaces or modules—TypeScript has them all! In this course, we'll not stop at the basics. You will learn about more advanced features and how to set up workflows with TypeScript. This includes TypeScript-only workflows as well as workflows using Gulp or Webpack. You'll also learn that you're not limited to Angular 2+ or plain JavaScript/TypeScript projects. One complete module covers how to use TypeScript with ReactJS to benefit from its features, too. You'll practice what you learn.

Watching videos is a great way to learn. And for a lot of students, it's the best way. If you also want to practice the things you learn, this course offers you exercises (and solutions) in many of the course modules. So much content!

In this course, you'll get insights into:

- Types and how to use them

- How the TypeScript compiler works

- ES6 features in TypeScript

Maximilian Schwarzmüller

Maximilian Schwarzmüller - Professional Web Developer and Instructor Since the age of 13, Maximilian Schwarzmüller has never stopped learning new programming skills and languages. In the early days, he started creating websites for friends and for fun. This passion has remained and shaped his decision to work as a freelance web developer and consultant. The success and fun he has in this job is immense and really keeps that passion alive. Although he started web development on the back end (PHP with Laravel and NodeJS), he has increasingly become a front-end developer using modern frameworks such as React, Angular, or VueJS 2 in a lot of projects. He loves both worlds nowadays! As a self-taught developer, he had broadened his horizon by studying Business Administration, resulting in a Master's degree. This enabled him to work in a major strategy consultancy as well as a bank. Whilst learning and developing his skills, he realized that he enjoyed development more than these fields. As a self-taught professional, Max is familiar with the difficult topics when learning new or improving on already-known languages. This background and experience enable him to focus on the most relevant key concepts and topics. His track record is the best proof of that. Whether working as a development instructor or teaching Business Administration, he always receives great feedback. The most rewarding experience is to see how people find new and better jobs, build awesome web applications, acquire amazing projects, or simply enjoy their hobby with the help of his content.
