TypeScript Deep Dive with Alex Eagle and Blake Embrey

Sure, you can write Angular 2 in ES6 with Babel or even ES5, but most developers that try out TypeScript with Angular 2 never look back. Alex Eagle is on the Angular core team at Google and has been doing a lot of work to make sure Angular 2 works well with TypeScript. Blake Embrey is the creator of ts-node and a huge TypeScript enthusiast. Even if you have concerns about typing in JavaScript, listen to this episode to get the low down on why TypeScript rocks and how it is going to help you to build awesome apps in Angular 2.
