Talk: Strictly TypeScript: Maximizing the Compiler


The Angular CLI is an amazing tool for being productive with Angular straight away. In order to facilitate the impressively low barrier to entry, there are some advanced optimizations that simply have to be disabled. In this talk James will walk you through how much more power the TypeScript compiler can offer you than what you get out of the box with Angular CLI, and how to enable it for your projects.

You’ll walk away with a deep understanding of TypeScript’s strict type checking capabilities, and how it is a spectrum, rather than a switch!


James loves helping other developers do their best work! He’s a Microsoft MVP for TypeScript and worked on TypeScript support in ESLint, Babel and Prettier.

James is going to show you how to get the most out of TypeScript in your Angular CLI powered projects 🚀
