It’s all about TypeScript

I’ve heard several of my friends talking about a new pretender on the block called TypeScript. It’s a language that sits as a superset of ¬†JavaScript,¬†adding static typing, interfaces, classes and more.

As a C# .Net developer, I was very interested to read about what it’s like from a similar point of view. Thankfully, Dave Hanson (@LordHanson) has blogged about a little experimental app he had a go with. Check it out here:

“Cracking a problem with TypeScript”

It looks we all (.Net devs) might be heading in that direction and Microsoft realise that it’ll need to bridge the gap. Looks like a good start. I’m almost excited about coding for the browser again.
