Well, this is the very final episode live from the .NET Conf CO 2017.  It was a pleasure to have such a talented group of people at this fantastic event!

Are you sick of JavaScript?  I totally am.  But hey, there is a language that makes JavaScript elegant and fun.  Its name? TypeScript!  TypeScript is a typed superset of JavaScript (hence, the name… very clever uh?) that compiles to plain JavaScript.

Nowadays TypeScript is being used by a lot of projects, like the Angular framework, which is built entirely in TypeScript.  And you can use it too! Because of this, in this episode we had the presence of Rachel Appel, who is part of the content team for ASP.NET and former Microsoft MVP.  In this talk, Rachel explains what in the world is TypeScript, what can we do with it, what is its related toolchain and what a development environment for it looks like.
