Practical TypeScript Migration

by Steve Ognibene

This course teaches practical techniques for migrating existing projects from JavaScript to TypeScript.

What you'll learn

In Practical TypeScript Migration, Steve Ognibene converts a web application that uses popular libraries like jQuery and Knockout to TypeScript. The example app is entirely HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, so this course is equally applicable to users of any server-side framework. Steve recommends migration techniques that work well, and highlights some things to avoid. He also makes sure to cover related subjects like source control and preparing your team. Once the application is converted over, Steve demonstrates the code refactoring capabilities that TypeScript enables, and then assembles a TypeScript build script using Grunt and other Node.js tools. After watching this course, you will be well prepared to migrate your existing JavaScript code to TypeScript.
