TypeScript Essentials: Getting Started

  • Set up a development environment for TypeScript in Microsoft Visual Studio 213
  • Set up Visual Studio 213 to display a split view of a TypeScript file with its corresponding JavaScript output
  • Use the Node.js package manager to install a TypeScript compiler and use it to compile a TypeScript file from the command-line
  • Customize TypeScript development environment in Visual Studio 213
  • Describe the difference between type inferences and type annotations in TypeScript and the pitfalls of not correctly typing the variables
  • Apply types to a functions input and output variables in TypeScript
  • Describe the "any" type in TypeScript
  • Differentiate between the null and undefined values in TypeScript
  • Work with string arrays in TypeScript
  • Obtain a TypeScript definition file, include it in a project, and add a reference to it in a TypeScript HTML application in Visual Studio 213
  • Use TypeScript with Visual Studio 213 to perform compile-time debugging
  • Set up breakpoint in TypeScript code and carry out single-step debugging
  • Define a TypeScript function with required and optional input parameters in Microsoft Visual Studio 213
  • Use an arrow function to specify a TypeScript function's return value in Microsoft Visual Studio 213
  • Declare a custom object that contains several properties and a member function
  • Define an interface in TypeScript and use it to create a new custom object
  • Create a class in TypeScript using Visual Studio 213
  • Use the extends keyword to implement class inheritance in TypeScript
  • Implement an interface for multiple classes in TypeScript
  • Extend an interface in TypeScript to pass a single data object in the call to the base constructor
  • Export interfaces and classes from internal modules to make them externally accessible
  • Extend an internal named module within the same file in TypeScript
  • Create and access a nested module in a TypeScript
  • Extend an internal module across two different TypeScript files in the same TypeScript project

TypeScript Essentials: Advanced TypeScript

  • Obtain and install NTVS and write a basic Node.js application in Visual Studio 213
  • Use CommonJS to facilitate loading external TypeScript modules when running on a Node.js server
  • Use require.js with AMD to asynchronously load external TypeScript modules in an HTML TypeScript application
  • Use the requireJS JavaScript module loader along with the AMD API to manage external module dependencies in TypeScript
  • Use RequireJS and the Asynchronous Module Definition API to import JQuery into a TypeScript HTML project
  • Use the typescript-require extension to load external TypeScript modules in a project
  • Use the new operator with two different kinds of constructor expressions to instantiate new objects in TypeScript
  • Use the instanceof operator to carryout compile-time type assertion checks in TypeScript
  • Work with the +, -, and ~ unary operators in TypeScript
  • Convert values from other types to type boolean in TypeScript
  • Contextually type a function expression's input parameter and return types as numbers
  • Contextually type a function expression's input parameter and return types as Strings in TypeScript
  • Apply contextual typing to object literal properties in TypeScript
  • Extend a TypeScript function by merging it with an internal named module
  • Extend an enumeration by merging it with an internal named module
  • Merge a class with an internal named module to describe an Inner Class in TypeScript
  • Use a Type query to check on anonymous object type in the TypeScript application
  • Implement type save callback functions
  • Call a generic function in a TypeScript application
  • Use the "this" keyword in a class constructor
  • Use a for-in loop to access and print out a list of key-value pairs from an object literal in TypeScript
