  • Explore TDD practices, OOP techniques, and industry best practices to create high-quality, modular, and adaptable applications.

Book Description

TypeScript is both a language and a set of tools to generate JavaScript. It was designed by Anders Hejlsberg at Microsoft to help developers write enterprise-scale JavaScript.

Starting with an introduction to the TypeScript language, before moving on to basic concepts, each section builds on previous knowledge in an incremental and easy-to-understand way. Advanced and powerful language features are all covered, including asynchronous programming techniques, decorators, and generics.

This book explores many modern JavaScript and TypeScript frameworks side by side in order for the reader to learn their respective strengths and weaknesses. It will also thoroughly explore unit and integration testing for each framework.

Best-of-breed applications utilize well-known design patterns in order to be scalable, maintainable, and testable. This book explores some of these object-oriented techniques and patterns, and shows real-world implementations.

By the end of the book, you will have built a comprehensive, end-to-end web application to show how TypeScript language features, design patterns, and industry best practices can be brought together in a real-world scenario.

What you will learn

  • Gain insights into core and advanced TypeScript language features
  • Integrate existing JavaScript libraries and third-party frameworks using declaration files
  • Target popular JavaScript frameworks, such as Angular, React, and more
  • Create test suites for your application with Jasmine and Selenium
  • Organize your application code using modules, AMD loaders, and SystemJS
  • Explore advanced object-oriented design principles
  • Compare the various MVC implementations in Aurelia, Angular, React, and more
