In this episode, Charles is at Microsoft Connect 2017 in NYC. Charles speaks with Amanda Silver. Amanda is deemed the  TypeScript and future of JavaScript guru, and this year’s speakers at Microsoft Connect with Visual Studio Live Share. Amanda shares what is new with TypeScript and how that is a kind of subscript to JavaScript.

When would this be taken on by users
Defaults in Visual Studio
TypeScript replacing JavaScript type service
TypeScript is written in TypeScript
Chakra runtime
Diaspora
The different faces of JavaScript
Optimized JavaScript runtime
Languages should be created with tooling
A satisfying tooling experience
Foot Guns
New Tokens
Eco-systems and metadata
Multi-phase
Minimum common denominator constantly changing
Collaborating on the same code
Open Source and the impact
How to move to open source
