CHCH.JS: Introduction to Typescript

Ersin will give us a beginners intro and overview of typescript, including how it allows us to take advantage of object-oriented principles. At the end of the session, you will have a working knowledge of the typescript language. A basic understanding of any programming language is advised.

Typescript is a superset of the javascript language, which aims to make the development of large applications more manageable. The language transpiles to javascript, and can run in any javascript environment.

Learnings
- How to install/setup typescript
- Benefits you get in vscode
- An example project you can use at home to play with typescript
- A very basic introduction to object oriented programming

Of course there's lovely beers on tap downstairs, and another 1 or 2 FrontendMasters.com 1-year subscription up for grabs.
See you then!

New Zealand Python User Group - Christchurch: Christchurch Python Meetup

Our meetups are always first Tuesday of a month at the Catalyst IT office above Pomeroys Pub.

We usually have a talk about anything that relates to Python programming language. Some months we run team coding challenges (aka "dojos"). These will be announced beforehand.

If you have a question about Python on or are stuck with some Python project, feel free to bring it up at the meetup. There will be people around who will be happy to help.

Doors open at 5:30pm, talk starts at 6pm.

At the start and end of the meetup, an informal conversation takes place, usually over a pint of beer.

Do not hesitate to pass this information around to whomever you think may be interested to hear and discuss all things Python.
