online goto night

GOTO Night with Eamonn Boyle & Garth Gilmour

Join us for the online meetup "TypeScript === JavaScript: The Snyder Cut" with Eamonn Boyle and Garth Gilmour. This GOTO Night is focused on exploring the advanced type system features brought by TypeScript and showing why these features are really useful in day to day coding.

About the event

with a static type system without compromising the existing syntax or limiting access to the rich ecosystem.

But this is just the tip of the iceberg. If we look deeper, TypeScript is bringing advanced type system features, previously only available in functional languages like Haskell, to the mainstream.

During this GOTO Night, Eamonn and Garth will explore some of those features - structural typing, algebraic types, mapped types, type guards, recursive type definitions etc. They will show why these features are really useful in day to day coding, and why you'll quickly start to miss them elsewhere. But fear not - they will also show how these features are now emerging in other languages too.
