Anders Hejlsberg Tech Talk on Typescript

A Square hosted event

Written by Andrew Kimball.

Heads up, we’ve moved! If you’d like to continue keeping up with the latest technical content from Square please visit us at our new home https://developer.squareup.com/blog

Anders Hejlsberg, author of Turbo Pascal and lead architect of C# at Microsoft, recently gave a tech talk on Typescript at Square. Typescript is a strict superset of Javascript that adds optional static typing and object-oriented constructs.

Because Typescript aligns with ECMAScript 6, it offers a partial “preview” of the future of Javascript development. Best of all, Typescript is open sourced and available on Github under the Apache license.

We are making Anders’ talk available so everyone can learn more about this elegant, yet practical, language. Enjoy!



Buying and selling sound like simple things - and they should be. Somewhere along the way, they got complicated. At Square, we're working hard to make commerce easy for everyone.
