In-depth TypeScript by Michel Weststrate

The JavaScript Eco System is moving to TypeScript. Fast. This workshop will explain why and when you might want to use TypeScript, and get you up and running with all the essentials. In this workshop we will cover practically the full language. And we will go deep. That is: do the cool and weird meta programming stuff. Learn all the tricks you won't find in the handbook.

This workshop is also suitable for those that have basic experience with TypeScript. Since the basics only take ~2 hours to cover, most of the day is still super valuable to enhance your TypeScript skills, even if you already have real project experience with TypeScript! Did you ever encounter super confusing types in some of the libraries you use? Did you get some super vague compiler errors? After this workshop you will be able to understand them!

Date: 15/9/2020 09:00 - 17:00


CityJSConf is a community joint event created by our Londons JavaScript meet-up groups. This is a non-profitable conference and our purpose is to give back to our community. Thanks to the great generosity of our sponsors we are giving away 20 tickets for this year’s main event.

We wish to support our community and highly encourage students and others coming from diverse backgrounds (people of color, LGBTQIA, people with disabilities, refugees, women, students and people facing economic or social hardships) to apply for scholarships. Travel and accommodation expenses are not included.

If you are keen to attend CityJSConf but have difficulty attending the conference due to lack of money or resources, this is your chance. We will be delighted to have you with us!
