Effective Typescript: 62 Specific Ways to Improve Your Typescript

VanderKam, Dan



TypeScript solves many of the headaches for which JavaScript is famous. This typed superset of JavaScript promises to make your code scale to many lines and to many contributors. But it's more sophisticated than JavaScript and learning to use it effectively can take time. With this practical book, you'll go from a software engineer familiar with JavaScript basics to an advanced TypeScript user in no time.


Dan Vanderkam, a principal software engineer at Sidewalk Labs, has built engineering teams and processes for all of its products and spinouts, all of which use TypeScript. He previously worked on open source genome visualizations at Mt. Sinai's Icahn School of Medicine and on search features used by billions of users at Google. He has a long history of working on open source projects, including the popular dygraphs library and source-map-explorer, a tool for visualizing JavaScript code size. He is also a co-founder of the NYC TypeScript meetup.
