 Feature Presentation     
TypeScript for JavaScript in Visual Studio
Hans Windhoff, Software Engineer, Consultant

Learn the benefits of using TypeScript for front end and Node.js development
in Visual Studio!

     TypeScript lets you write JavaScript the way you really want to.
     TypeScript is a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript.
     Any browser. Any host. Any OS. Open Source.
Starts with JavaScript, Ends with JavaScript --
     TypeScript starts from the syntax and semantics that millions of JavaScript developers know today. With TypeScript, you can use existing JavaScript code, incorporate popular JavaScript libraries, and be called from other JavaScript code. TypeScript compiles to clean, simple JavaScript code which runs on any browser, in Node.js, or in any other ES3-compatible environment.
Scalable --
     TypeScript offers classes, modules, and interfaces to help you build robust components.  These features are available at development time for high-confidence application development, but are compiled into simple JavaScript. TypeScript types let you define interfaces between software components and to gain insight into the behavior of existing JavaScript libraries.
Strong Tools for Large Applications --
     Types enable TypeScript developers to use highly-productive development tools and practices: static checking, symbol-based navigation, statement completion, and code refactoring. These types are optional, and type inference allows a few type annotations to make a big difference to the static verification of your code.
