Skinny jeans, ironic mustaches & TypeScript: Engineering in the new web.

TypeScript introduces powerful features for the object oriented programmer.  Concepts like interfaces, classes, inheritance, variable scoping, and of course static typing.  This allows better scalability and maintainability of your applications as well as enables IDEs to provide a feature rich environment for error and syntax highlighting.  Typescript works with your existing JavaScript code and third-party libraries because it compiles to plain JavaScript, that means it runs on any browser, any host, any OS.
