Hey everybody, my name is Brice Wilson and welcome to my course “Getting Started with TypeScript”.

I’m a server and client-side web developer.

TypeScript’s popularity is exploding - and for lots of good reasons. It’s a superset of JavaScript that helps you write better code faster and it compiles to JavaScript that will run in NodeJS or any modern browser.

In this course, we’re going to cover all of the basic TypeScript topics to quickly make you productive with the language. Some of the major topics that we’ll cover include configuring a TypeScript projectusing types with functions, classes, interfaces, modules, and type declaration files.

By the end of this course, you’ll know how to use all of the most important features of the language and be ready to begin your first TypeScript project.Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the basics of JavaScript, but you certainly don’t need to be an expert.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn TypeScript with the Getting Started with TypeScript course at Pluralsight.
