1. Your First TypeScript Application

Adam Freeman

The best way to get started with TypeScript is to dive in. In this chapter, I take you through a simple development process to create an application that keeps track of to-do items. Later chapters show how TypeScript features work in detail, but a simple example will be enough to demonstrate how the basic TypeScript features work. Don’t worry if you don’t understand everything in this chapter. The idea is just to get an overall sense of how TypeScript works and how it fits into an application.
