Believe it or not, there are still a large number of .NET developers these days, that are happy to stay in the server domain, writing code only in C#

While that may be your thing (and I'm not going to stop you) .... you owe it to yourself to at least explore the world of front end code.

The problem is, the front end is...  well, JavaScript, and we all know how that's panning out for the millions of those that use it everyday.

Fear not however.  There is a way you can explore programming in the browser, and still maintain all this nice stuff your used to in C# code, things like Type safety, OOP programming and generics.

That Way is called  TYPESCRIPT

In this [Quite fast paced] presentation, I'll show you some of the things that Typescript gives you to ease the pain and keep you clear of the world of JavaScript code.  You'll see some of the newer ES6/7 Constructs that Typescript now embraces, but more importantly....

You'll get to play in the browser, while still thinking and working in a very back-end programmer like way.

I'll not be teaching you the Typescript Language, nor will I be showing you any majorly cool coding tricks, I'll simply just be showing you that coming out of the server room, doesn't have to be painful at all.
