The presentation is broken up into two halves. The first half explains a little about what TypeScript is and the benefits it provides with minimal code changes such as null checking, better error handling, implicit type guards, and module resolution. The second half dives in to using typescript: types, type annotation, implicit vs explicit, union/intersection, interfaces, classes, and generics.
