Book Description

30 Jan 2013 1430257253 978-1430257257
TypeScript Revealed is a quick 100-page guide to Anders Hejlsberg's new take on JavaScript. With this brief, fast-paced introduction to TypeScript, .NET, Web and Windows 8 application developers who are already familiar with JavaScript will easily get up to speed with TypeScript and decide whether or not to start incorporating it into their own development. TypeScript is 'JavaScript for Application-scale development' a superset of JavaScript that brings to it an additional object-oriented-like syntax familiar to .NET programmers that compiles down into simple, clean JavaScript that any browser can run today. It's also tied to the next version of the JavaScript standard, which means that TypeScript will continue to evolve over time to keep in step with that standard and with the capabilities of the engines that will execute JavaScript applications. If you are a .NET developer, Web designer or developer, or a programmer with a keen interest in scalable applications, TypeScript Revealed is a great way to get started with the language, learn how it compiles into JavaScript, and how easy it is to learn from a .NET/Java developer's perspective. Takes you through the language features in Typescript additional to those in JavaScript Describes the tooling and community support for TypeScript development Discusses how TypeScript can be included in ASP.NET, Windows 8, and node.js application development projects. What you'll learn Why you should care about TypeScript What it does and what it doesn't do The current toolset and levels of support The new syntax features of TypeScript How to build your own TypeScript declaration files How to incorporate TypeScript into your projects Who this book is for TypeScript Revealed is aimed at the early adopter developer who is already familiar with Microsoft tools and .NET and/or JavaScript development that wants a flavor of TypeScript distilled, culled, and organized in one place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get up to speed quickly 18 Mar 2013
By Boogle
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sometimes you just want a book that takes you through a new language quickly and concisely, and this is exactly what this book does. It's definitely for programmers - this isn't a 'Learn Typescript in 21 days' style book in the slightest. It runs you through what TypeScript is and isn't, and brings you up to speed on the language.

If you're like me and want to quickly learn and use the language without sifting through numerous blog posts, this book is perfect. Code formatting on phone is a little wonky, but on an iPad (landscape, full-width) it's just right.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty thin 25 Jun 2013
By Truffle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is really not a very useful book. It pulls together a few aspects of Typescript which is nice, but there's a lot missing and the examples are pretty terse and several are actually .NET C# examples. If the author is at all serious he should put out a new edition with about 3 times the content about Typescript itself and how to use it, this book really needs a lot of work.

Overall, I'd not recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 1 Jun 2013
By Jonathan M. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There are a whopping 3 chapters in this tiny little book. About one, maybe one and a half, chapters discuss the new syntax and the benefits of using TypeScript over Javascript. The rest is praise and adoration for Anders H. and detailed discussion about the tooling Microsoft built into Visual Studio (w/ Web Essentials extension) and other tools to help developers develop TypeScript with IntelliSense. -.- yaay

I want to emphasize that other than the Introduction's praise for Anders there is nothing in this book that can't be found online at TypeScript's web site and searching for tutorials and opinions.

5.0 out of 5 stars At this point the best intro into TypeScript 1 Dec 2013
By The Hun - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I have spent time looking at tutorials and at the official specification ([...] I felt that the tutorials were insufficient and the specification too tedious. I bought another book: TypeScript For JavaScript Programmers which, after coding for only a few hours, I felt it did not answer some basic practical questions. Eventually I bought this book "TypeScript Revealed" which finally put me on the right track.
1.0 out of 5 stars Get the Kindle Version 19 Feb 2014
By Gregory A. Gum - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a one chapter book. OK, technically, it has three chapters, but the first is on installing Typescript, and the 3rd is on the compiler. So there is only one chapter left on typescript.

As an Apress book, I expected a deep dive - this is not - it is an introduction to typescript. (It's only 83 pages including the index and appendixes, despite what the description says.)

The typescript chapter is well written, but it's no better than any other intro you can find on Typescript. The best I have found so far is Anders intro video on Channel 9. The video has many more examples than are given in the book.

So if you need an intro, get the Kindle version - it's easier to read, you can click on the long links, and copy and paste the few samples into VS to try them out.

I got this after watching the above video, but there was no new material. I am sorry Dan, I hate to give bad reviews, but this was just not what I was expecting.
3.0 out of 5 stars Cover all that matters but I didn't like the writing style very much 14 Jan 2014
By A. Cordeiro Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The language felt a bit tiresome and not enough vetted. However it provides loads of important information.
For someone just getting acquainted with typescript a free typescript ebook called Typescript succinctly by Steve Fenton and perhaps used 'Revealed' as a second read.
