About this event

This class is a 2-day series running on Tuesday March 12th and Thursday March 14th from 7:00pm to 9:00pm each day.

TypeScript starts from the same syntax and semantics that millions of JavaScript developers know today. Use existing JavaScript code, incorporate popular JavaScript libraries, and call TypeScript code from JavaScript.

TypeScript compiles to clean, simple JavaScript code which runs on any browser, in Node.js, or in any JavaScript engine that supports ECMAScript 3 (or newer).

* You will need to bring your own laptop and charger.

* You should have basic knowledge of JavaScript or another programming language.
