Introduction to TypeScript

Champaign Urbana JavaScript Meetup — Sept 2019

TypeScript makes me a happy programmer. I gave a talk at a JavaScript meetup to share that happiness with my local tech community.

This talk has three parts:

  1. What is TypeScript?
  2. Learn TypeScript in 5 minutes
  3. Why I recommend TypeScript
