Anders Hejlsberg, MICROSOFT AND TYPESCRIPT

 

Until very recently object oriented languages ruled the software world. But, mobile application development with HTML5, JavaScript and REST changed that equation. Working with JavaScript can be cumbersome at times, especially larger projects.

 

Microsoft introduced a new language which compiles to pure JavaScript. Anders Hejlsberg led the development effort. This is a very welcoming news. So many enterprise applications are being built using HTML5/JavaScript/CSS2/REST. Having a better JavaScript which helps in large projects was overdue. I am glad that Microsoft realized this and moving in the right direction. It appears that, this was created as part of the internal need. Bing team does lot of work with JavaScript and needed a better way to manage such a large project.
