Leverage the features of TypeScript to boost your development skills and create captivating applications About This Book Learn how to develop modular, scalable, maintainable, and adaptable web applications by taking advantage of TypeScript Explore techniques to use TypeScript alongside other leading tools such as Angular 2, React, and Node Focusing on design patterns in TypeScript, this step-by-step guide demonstrates all the important design patterns in practice Who This Book Is For This Learning Path is for intermediate-level JavaScript developers who want to use TypeScript to build beautiful web applications and fun projects. No prior knowledge of TypeScript is required, but a basic understanding of jQuery is expected. This Learning Path is also for experienced TypeScript developers who want to take their skills to the next level, and also for web developers who wish to make the most of TypeScript. What You Will Learn Understand the key TypeScript language features and runtime Install and configure the necessary tools in order to start developing an application Create object-oriented code that adheres to the SOLID principles Develop robust applications with testing (Mocha, Chai, and SinonJS) Apply GoF patterns in an application with a testing approach Identify the challenges when developing an application Migrate JavaScript codebases to TypeScript to improve your workflow Utilize System.JS and Webpack to load scripts and their dependencies Develop high performance server-side applications to run within Node In Detail TypeScript is an open source and cross-platform typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript that runs in any browser or any host. TypeScript adds optional static types, classes, and modules to JavaScript, to enable great tooling and better structuring of large JavaScript applications. Through this three-module learning path, you’ll learn the ins-and-outs of TypeScript for building more robust software. The first module gets you started with TypeScript and helps you understand the basics of TypeScript and automation tools. Get a detailed description of function, generics, callbacks, and promises, and discover the object-oriented features and memory management functionality of TypeScript. The next module starts by explaining the current challenges when designing and developing an application and how you can solve these challenges by applying the correct design pattern and best practices. You will be introduced to low-level programming concepts to help you write TypeScript code, as well as working with software architecture, best practices, and design aspects. The final module will help you build a complete single page app with Angular 2, create a neat mobile app using NativeScript, and even build a Pac Man game with TypeScript. As if the fun wasn't enough, you'll also find out how to migrate your legacy codebase from JavaScript to TypeScript. By the end of this Learning Path, you will be able to take your skills up a notch and develop full-fledged web applications using the latest features of the TypeScript. This Learning Path combines some of the best that Packt has to offer in one complete, curated package. It includes content from the following Packt products: Learning TypeScript by Remo H. Jansen TypeScript Design Patterns by Vilic Vane TypeScript Blueprints by Ivo Gabe de Wolff Style and approach This is a step-by-step, practical guide covering the fundamentals of TypeScript with practical examples. The end-to-end projects included in this book will give you ready-to-implement solutions for your business scenario, showcasing the depth and robustness of TypeScript.

Road to creating optimized applications In Detail Both the web and mobile development strategies have developed noticeably since inception and will continue improving in the future as well. Angular 2 is a framework that is well equipped with almost everything that you need to build a complex web or mobile application. Not only does it bring web and mobile development under a single umbrella, it excels at the performance it provides at both ends. This Learning Path will help you gain a strong foundation in Angular 2 and cover a few hands-on projects that will be tied with real world scenarios. Initially, the Learning path covers basic concepts and best practices that will get you up and working with Angular 2. It then covers the basics of creating components and simple applications and then moves on to the concepts that will help you create and deploy the apps efficiently. And then, the last segment covers creating complex applications that will use advanced features of Angular 2.
