TypeScript is JavaScript on steroids. Not only it adds static typing to JavaScript applications, but it also adds ES2016+ features like arrow functions, destructuring, async/await, decorators, type guards and so on. These features are extremely powerful and help to write code in a simpler way compared to the past.

In this sessions we’ll talk about these features and we’ll see how to use them to better solve from common to advanced problems.

Seems more a talk about Visual Studio Code, which is a nice product.

It was about "basic typescript" not "advanced typescript"

Wrong title. Improvable public speaking. Better advanced examples needed (or, as I said, wrong title).

I think Stefano did an awesome job in introducing the advantages of typescript in such a short amount of time. Plus I think the live demo (which is always very tricky time-wise) was prepared and performed extremely well. All the examples were very easy to understand and, at the same time, they were not trivial and somewhat realistic. Every example was building on top of the previous one so it was rather simple to keep the pace and understand why every feature mattered.
4 Stars only because I believe the title was a bit misleading, I felt it more like an introduction to typescript and its features rather than an advanced talk, anyway I have no doubt he could have kept going in all sort of details with more time available! :)

Turned out to be about basic TypeScript, unfortunately. Couldn't even ask a question because time got short.

Talk was OK, as I dont come from JS community it was interesting to see some Typescript details but I wouldnt call the talk 'advanced' in any sense. Title was totally misleading, it felt more as a 'Intro to some Typescript features'.

Speaker was pretty good, I saw bit of nervousness which is understandable but think he can work on getting English bit better (it was understandable, dont get me wrong but bit hard to follow)

I love the subject but this talk was unfortunately centered about pretty basic stuff. The speaker just showcased what TypeScript can do and what everybody should do when confronted with common problems. Based on the title, I expected the same problems solved with some unconventional methods, I suppose.

I liked the talk, and of course, probably the lack of time didn't help to move over

There was not that much contents here. The talk was full of useless examples (if the function requires one parameter and we write no parameters, the amazing Visual Studio will alert us, if the function requires two parameters and we use three parameters Visual Studio will alert us, if the function requires three parameters... ok, I guess we get it).

Nice talk but I suppose it was too entry level so my rating is 3/5 instead of 4/5 as I'm evaluating it in a "conference optics").
BTW it was good for me because I was there for upcoming PHPDay as I am a backend developer and was nice to follow a topic where I'm not an expert.
