TypeScript is JavaScript with an important upgrade! By adding a strong type system to JavaScript, TypeScript can help you eliminate entire categories of runtime errors. In TypeScript Quickly, you’ll learn to build rock-solid apps through practical examples and hands-on projects under the expert instruction of experienced web developers Yakov Fain and Anton Moiseev.

About the technology

Strong typing can eliminate nearly all errors caused by unanticipated data values. With TypeScript, an enhanced version of JavaScript, you can specify types and type annotations so your code is easier to read and far less likely to fail at runtime. And because the core of TypeScript is standard JavaScript, it runs on all major browsers and can be used with frameworks like Angular, Vue, and React.

About the book

TypeScript Quickly teaches you to exploit the benefits of types in browser-based and standalone applications. In this practical guide, you’ll build a fascinating blockchain service app that takes you through a range of type-sensitive programming techniques. As you go, you’ll also pick up valuable techniques for object-oriented programming with classes, interfaces, and advanced features such as decorators and conditional types.
