Quick intro to web development with TypeScript, webpack and Aurelia
Earlier this month I spoke at SeattleJS meetup. I love this meetup! People attending it are awesome! Thank you Jeremy Foster for inviting me to speak! If you are living in Seattle area you should definitely check it out!
I gave fast-paced 30 mins overview of TypeScript. I showed a sample app that is taking advantage of webpack for continuous compilation, bundling and minification. I also did quick demo of Aurelia Framework <3
TypeScript team and Anders Hejlsberg shared with me a few interesting reads about migrating to TypeScript:
- TypeScript at Slack
- Glimmer.js: What’s the Deal with TypeScript?
I also found out that Visual Studio Code was initially written in TypeScript, and before v1 release they switched to TypeScript.
To learn more about specifics of building large web apps, check out my talk from Ignite Australia I gave earlier this year:
At the same conference, I gave a longer version of the talk I did at the meetup. So if you want to dive in deeper, the video is here.
Once more, thanks SeattleJS for organizing awesome meetup and inviting me to speak! Great meetup, great people, keep up good work!
