Is TypeScript Micrsoft’s answer to Google’s Dart?


One more programming language!

On 1st October, 2012 Microsoft released TypeScript.

Like Google’s Dart it is pitched against JavaScript. Unlike Dart it does not reject JavaScript syntax.

6 facts about TypeScript

  1. It compiles into JavaScript
  2. Its syntax is a super-set of JavaScript
  3. It is JavaScript + Object Orientation
  4. It is multi- platform – work with node.js and Visual Studio 2012
  5. It is opensource with Apache 2.0 license
  6. It is created by Anders Hejlsberg

Who is Anders Hejlsberg?

= Danish Software Engineer

= Created Turbo Pascal

= Created Delphi

= Created C#

= Works for Microsoft

Will it succeed? Your guess is as good as mine!
