Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Thiago Temple, and welcome to my course: Getting the Most from the TypeScript's Compiler. TypeScript is a great language that has been largely growing in adoption in part because it provides static typing on top of JavaScript, but you can have even greater benefits beyond the basic typing the language provides. If you are embracing or have already adopted TypeScript, why not go beyond and try to get the most that you can from it? Here are some of the things we will be exploring in this course: configuring the compiler to do a more strict check on the code, using some of the more advanced features of the language to avoid simple mistakes, a few techniques to keep the code as statically typed as possible, how to implement business rules using the types and type checking that the TypeScript compiler provides. By the end of this course, you'll have a deeper understanding of TypeScript and how you can leverage its compiler to have a greater feedback while you're writing your code, how to avoid mistakes that can be caught by the compiler, how to clean up your code, and even how to improve the design of your applications. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the TypeScript language. This is not a beginner's course. I will not be explaining the basics of the language, but that's the only thing you should know. I hope you join me on this journey to learn how to get the most from the TypeScript compiler, at Pluralsight.
