TypeScript for Java Developers

Is your JavaScript growing out of control? Would you like to add some class to your client-side development? With TypeScript you can. TypeScript is an optionally typed superset of JavaScript. It adds classes, interfaces and other object-oriented constructs familiar to Java developers. In the end it all compiles down to regular JavaScript for consumption by any JS runtime. Be it a browser or for example Nashorn.

In this session we introduce TypeScript by example. You’ll see that it's more modular, less error-prone and more fun to code in TypeScript!
