    TypeScript, a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to idiomatic (normal) JavaScript, is designed to make it easier to write cross-platform, application scale, JavaScript that runs in any browser or in any host. It was announced recently while Anders Hejlsberg and other key members of the TypeScript team were attending and speaking at the goto conference (an excellent cross-platform developer event!). Needless to say, Channel 9 was there Smiley

    Google’s V8 and Dart chief architect Lars Bak also happened to be at the event (he’s currently leading the Dart team full time). Anders and Lars join us to talk candidly about TypeScript, JavaScript and Dart. Huge thanks to Anders and Lars for this excellent conversation.

    Tune in. Enjoy

  2. Excessive Enhancement: JavaScript’s Dark Side

    Are we being seduced by the animation and rich UI capabilities of modern browsers at the expense of the underlying platform of the Web?

    The Web has entered a new phase in its evolution: The proliferation of a JavaScript enabled audience with increased processing grunt in their devices, better and more ambitious JavaScript developers, and users with an appetite for sophisticated experiences, all seem to be helping to move the web in a rich and exciting direction.

    Good developers understand about graceful degradation, progressive enhancement, unobtrusive JavaScript and the like, so why are we seeing big companies building web offerings with little apparent thought for their impact on the Web?

    We’ll explore this by looking at what the Web was, is now, and might become. We’ll look at examples of exciting user interfaces and sophisticated interactions. We’ll also examine some emerging techniques for providing rich user interactions without hurting the web or killing kittens.
