  • A fast-paced guide that will take you on a journey through the various new features of TypeScript, with the help of real-world, practical videos that show you how to dive right into web application development using TypeScript’s essential know-how!

Writing large applications in JavaScript is a challenge. TypeScript brings JavaScript down to Earth by providing optional static typing and future JavaScript features today. It gives the developer instant feedback on the code they are writing in order to catch mistakes earlier in the development process.

In this video course, you will put in place all TypeScript code to have the basics of the application running by starting the project from scratch, creating the structures and files needed and stitching the code all together with modules. You will also learn how to use third-party code not written in TypeScript. Finally, this volume shows how to enhance your build process in particular with Node and Gulp, and then, how to debug the application.

The aim of this video is to describe why and how to get Visual Studio Code, which will be used in all the future explanations.

Visual Studio Code

We need multiple libraries and a server to run the application. Node.js allows us to have that in few minutes.


JavaScript is not strongly typed and getting an existing JavaScript library requires some work to make it compatible with TypeScript.

Getting Packages from NPM

Many tasks are required when building and Gulp allows doing it in a single command line.

Writing Gulp Script to Build TypeScript

TypeScript can be used from command line or by a configuration file. In both cases they have multiple options and some are required to be activated for advanced features.

Files, Modules, and Namespaces
3 Lectures 31:39

We need to have basic files to work with TypeScript features as well as a basic project.

Preview 05:32

TypeScript files need to access other pieces of TypeScript files. To communicate, files needs to use modules.

Working with TypeScript Modules and Namespace

The aim of this video is to lay down some files that we will use to explain more advanced concepts. Instead of just writing code, we use this opportunity to review the basic concepts of TypeScript.

Review Basic TypeScript Concepts
Getting the Third-Party JavaScript Library
3 Lectures 24:50

To have TypeScript compile and have Intelisense while coding, TypeScript needs to have definition files.

Preview 04:48

The aim of the video is to reference a third-party library as a module and use this one in a single file.

Referencing a Third-Party JavaScript Library

Some libraries are being used often and we can use them without importing.

Referencing a Third-Party JavaScript Library Everywhere
Running and Debugging
3 Lectures 17:45

The code needs to be run and delivered to the user from a server. The solution is to run on Node.js with Gulp, a server.

Preview 07:15

Once we develop code, debugging is a natural step to figure out what is wrong.

Debugging with Chrome

In this video, we will see how to debug your JavaScript generated from TypeScript as well as the Gulp file.
