Course Description

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

This course will provide an overview of TypeScript, a statically typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript. The TypeScript language features an innovative structural type system that incorporates gradual typing and type inference. In this course, you'll learn how to use features of TypeScript such as optional static types, classes, interfaces, and modules to JavaScript, enabling IDE productivity features such as statement completion, refactoring, and code navigation. You'll learn how to make it easier for teams to communicate requirements and build applications safely using these advanced features through Microsoft Visual Studio. The TypeScript project is open-source and hosted on GitHub.

I was enjoying learning this course, even though I never write code using JavaScript. Materials are nice prepared, and the process is very interactive if you're doing all homework. I wish Microsoft updated it with a new content of TypeScript 2.0 including such cool feature as 'Null- and undefined-aware types', 'Control flow based type analysis' etc.

This was my first exposure to TypeScript. As a Java developer, I hate JavaScript with a passion (no good tooling support) and felt right at home with the TypeScript language itself. The infrastructure I will get used to over time. Since TypeScript has evolved since the recording of the lessons, some information could be more up to date, e.g. the lesson on external modules. Some of the examples could have been better but even though I enjoyed the course a lot. I highly recommend the course for people like me.

This is unfortunate. The instructor is great. The first few chapters are great. Goes into the basics and then the exercises assume you know quite a bit. It get's tough very fast. I really wish they had slowed down with simpler exercises and then increased the difficulty as we progressed. Also, whose genius idea was it to not provide any solutions to any of the questions or exercises? Why not make the course enjoyable - it's like they went out of their way to make this crazy difficult.
