Overview

TypeScript is a typed superset of JavaScript with the potential to solve many of the headaches for which JavaScript is famous. But TypeScript has a learning curve of its own, and understanding how to use it effectively can take time. This book guides you through 62 specific ways to improve your use of TypeScript.

Author Dan Vanderkam, a principal software engineer at Sidewalk Labs, shows you how to apply these ideas, following the format popularized by Effective C++ and Effective Java (both from Addison-Wesley). You’ll advance from a beginning or intermediate user familiar with the basics to an advanced user who knows how to use the language well.

Effective TypeScript is divided into eight chapters:

  • Getting to Know TypeScript
  • TypeScript’s Type System
  • Type Inference
  • Type Design
  • Working with any
  • Types Declarations and @types
  • Writing and Running Your Code
  • Migrating to TypeScript
