Using Typescript when Creating a React App w/ Madalyn Baehre

Hey JavaScriptLA fans, our next meetup is upon us. Please RSVP with eventbrite to be included in the headcount:

While many web developers associate Typescript with Angular, it’s certainly not the only Javascript framework that can benefit from all that Typescript has to offer.

In this talk, we’ll focus on how it can be used to enhance the developer experience when creating a React app.

First we’ll give a general overview of Typescript and show the scalability and tooling it can provide to any application.

Then we’ll give steps to set it up in a new or existing React app and provide some helpful examples for how to integrate types into components and with Redux.

This talk will assume some familiarity with React/ Redux as explanations will center around how to integrate Typescript rather than React itself.

About the Presenter:

Madalyn Baehre abandoned her chemical engineering degree last summer after attending Codesmith bootcamp to learn software engineering skills.

Since Codesmith, she’s worked at Aon Cyber Solutions as a web developer. There, Madalyn led the integration of Typescript with a React app, set up a GraphQL API testing framework, and most recently took on the task of internationalizing the frontend of one of their Angular apps.
