Hey everybody, my name is Brice Wilson and welcome to my course “Advanced TypeScript”.

I’m a server and client-side web developer.

I love TypeScript and taking advantage of everything it has to offer. In this course, we’re going to explore some of the more advanced features of the language that will help you solve difficult problems with new techniques and generally take your TypeScript code from “good” to “great”.

Some of the major topics that we’ll cover include:
1. Intersection and union types
2. Type guards
3. Decorators
4. Asynchronous patterns
5. And linting.
By the end of the course, you’ll know how to use the language’s most powerful features to solve difficult problems using clean and compact techniques you might not have even thought possible with typescript.

Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the basics of JavaScript and TypeScript, but you certainly don’t need to be an expert at either of them.
I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn lots of powerful TypeScript techniques with the Advanced TypeScript course at Pluralsight.
