TypeScript Fundamentals by Roy Derks

If you're developing applications with JavaScript you've probably already heard about TypeScript. TypeScript is a strongly-typed superset of JavaScript, that has incorporated all the modern JavaScript features and added a type-system on top of it. In this workshop, I'll teach you the fundamentals of TypeScript (v3+), by coding together (a lot).

What you'll learn:

  • Why TypeScript? Or type-systems?
  • Project setup and configuration
  • Primitives, interfaces, classes, generics
  • Inference
  • Custom types
  • Applying TypeScript to existing projects


  • Experience with ES2015+
  • A computer with node and npm installed
  • IDE with TypeScript support
