We all at least heard of this language called Javascript, created in mythical 10 days with it's famous bad and good parts. It usually feels weird and uneasy to seasoned Java/JVM developers if one has to deal with it: no compiler safety-net, no types checking, prototypal inheritance, unexpected runtime errors etc. Truth is these days Javascript is everywhere and it really pays off to be able to work on this platform. But what to do if you feel really uncomfortable with the language itself? Meet Typescript and feel at home: compiler, types, class-based inheritance, interfaces, generics and other goodies. I'll show and try to convince you that writing client stuff as well as solid backends in Typescript can feel familiar to Java/JVM developers, be productive and fun.
