Whether you’re a JavaScript beginner, expert or fanatic-now is a great time to learn TypeScript, a programming language designed to make JavaScript strongly typed and capable of supporting large-scale web applications. TypeScript is a superset of JavaScript, and its recent release, TypeScript 2.0, adds extra features, such as glob support, to make a developer’s life easier. It provides the flexibility to write JavaScript programs that can grow over time without becoming too unwieldy and frees you to concentrate on learning JavaScript frameworks, such as Express and Angular, that empower you to build both RESTful web services and modern client applications.

I just authored a new 5-day course on TypeScript-Essential TypeScript 2.0 with Visual Studio Code-a culmination of a four-month odyssey in which I not only had to learn TypeScript grammar and syntax, but also master an entirely new technology stack and toolchain. Here is a list of topics included in the course:

  1. Introduction to TypeScript
  2. TypeScript Language Basics
  3. Using Visual Studio Code with TypeScript
  4. Task Automation, Unit Testing, Continuous Integration
  5. The TypeScript Type System
  6. Functional Programming
  7. Asynchronous Programming
  8. Object-Oriented Programming
  9. Generics and Decorators
  10. Namespaces and Modules
  11. Practical TypeScript with Express and Angular

I thoroughly enjoyed the process of adding a new weapon to my arsenal as a software developer and the chance to venture off in an entirely new direction. Here are four reasons why now is the right time for you to learn TypeScript.

1. Revenge of JavaScript

A compelling reason to learn JavaScript is that it can be used to write apps for more than just web browsers
