For a concise read on why the enterprise should care about using TypeScript in its applications, look no further than Remo Jansen of the Aon Centre for Innovation and Analytics’ presentation on the 6 reasons you should be using TypeScript.
The SitePen engineering team has been using TypeScript since it came onto the open source scene 5 years ago. We’ve built several customer applications using TypeScript and TypeScript frameworks. Our next generation version of Dojo (which will be the defacto enterprise framework for organizations who value sustainability, longevity and true open source software) is 100% TypeScript.
With a healthy respect for what the TypeScript team has accomplished and being enthusiastic contributors to the TypeScript language through development, our TypeDoc improvements and our testing framework, Intern (built with and for use in testing TypeScript), we are well-positioned to modernize applications beginning with tech stack migration, forward-thinking architecture, TypeScript development, team training and commercial support.
While we’ve been offering online TypeScript workshops for quite some time, our UK contingent of engineers have their hearts set on delivering a public training course to the London (and surrounding countries) developer community. So, for one time only, please join our CTO, Kitson Kelly – a team-labeled TypeScript purist – as he brings you some serious TypeScript training and to the next level in enterprise web development.
