Advanced TypeScript: Generic Search, Sorting, and Filtering
What you'll learn
- TypeScript Generics
- Creating generic, reusable functions in TypeScript
- Creating generic, reusable UI components in React
- Search, sorting, and filtering generic functions in TypeScript
- Decent understanding and prior use of TypeScript
This course is going to be all about using generics in TypeScript. In this course, we'll start off by going over some examples of what generics are in TypeScript and when they can be used to our advantage.
We'll learn and see how to create generic search, sort, and filter functions that can be applied to any type of data we throw at them. To give the generic functions life, we'll use a simple React UI with made-up 'Widget' and 'Person' data types.
As with all my other courses, through each lesson of the course, I make commits to a git repository, which you can access lesson by lesson and see the application run on your own machine. The repository is on GitHub, and will be in the resources for Lesson 2.
Generics are a fairly advanced aspect of TypeScript, and this course will not be going over more of the basics. If you'd be interested in a TypeScript overview course, please let me know; I think that's something I could put together. Otherwise, I think there are plenty of other great TypeScript tutorials out on the web, and I'll link to some of the ones I've used myself in the class resources.
I put a lot of time and effort into this course to show you the power of generics, and how to use them throughout your applications. I hope you enjoy this course!
Who this course is for:
- Intermediate to advanced TypeScript programmers looking to expand their skills with TypeScript
I've been a professional full stack software engineer for 7+ years, and I've been programming for many more. In 2014, I earned two separate degrees from Clarkson University: Mechanical Engineering and Physics. I continued at Cornell for my M.S. Degree in Mechanical Engineering. My thesis at Cornell was a technical software project where I first learned Bash and used a unique stack of Perl and Fortran, producing a publication in the scientific journal Combustion and Flame: "A novel atom tracking algorithm for the analysis of complex chemical kinetic networks".
I'm happy to give back and teach what I've learned over the years, because I think software development is especially difficult these days, with all the new tools and frameworks that seem to come out daily.
I don't want anyone to be intimated by this and I too struggle and reach out from time to time for help and mentoring. I try to make my courses as clear as possible so you don't get lost or confused.
