You’ve probably heard about TypeScript by now. Many companies are adopting it, including top companies like Slack, Airbnb, and Google.

Do you use VS Code? Do you enjoy the excellent JavaScript support and IntelliSense it has? Well, that’s thanks to TypeScript!

TypeScript is a strict superset of JavaScript, and it can help you write safer and more maintainable code. In this hands-on workshop, we’ll start with some basics, and then move on to some more advanced topics doing live coding along the way!

Topics to be covered:

  • Basic types (number, boolean, string)
  • Arrays and tuples
  • Objects and interfaces
  • Unions and Intersections
  • Typing functions
  • Discriminant union types
  • And more…
  • And we’ll be doing live coding along the way!

You may have used it before and got a wrong impression, but I’ll try to convince you why it’s a good idea to use it!


  • Familar with ES6 (let, const, arrow functions, …)
  • Familiar with array methods (map, filter, …)
