Topic: TypeScript for the .NET Developer

Are you an ASP.NET developer that’s looking to embrace JavaScript but just can’t get the hang of it? So was I! In this presentation I’ll show you how to can start using TypeScript to keep your application easily refactorable using your familiar tools. I’ll show you how you can use the DefinitelyTyped repository to utilize TypeScript with third party plugins such as Angular or Knockout. Finally, I’ll show you how to use TypeLITE to help leverage reuse of your .NET models in JavaScript. All of these tools are free and they’ll definitely make you feel more at home in the JavaScript world.
