Little Big Event #1 – Types everywhere!


Last Thursday, I was at Clermont-Ferrand in France to talk about the TypeScript type system. It was a special event organized by Mug In Clermont, LavaJUG and Clermont’ech.

During my talk, I explain what is TypeScript and how it works. I also did a live coding session to demonstrate how to use type concept like Intersection, Union, Guards, MappedConditional  and infer. To be honest I don’t really do a lot of live coding sessions because I don’t like demo effects, but it’s near impossible to explain those concepts with just slides… and it was fun actually 🙂

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

There were a lot of developers during this event, the Clermont community is really active and friendly. It’s probably one of the best community event I did this year, thanks to organizers for the invitation, hope I can comeback later!

As always slides are available on Speaker Deck here. Also, live coding sources are on Github.

Paris TypeScript #17 – Functional Programming with TypeScript


Yesterday, during Paris TypeScript meetup, I talked about Functional Programming with TypeScript.

It was an introduction on Functional Programming basic concepts and it’s definitely not a common topic in the TypeScript community, a lot of developers still using OOP only with the language. To be honest this talk wasn’t the easiest I made, because it was the first time I try to explain Functional Programming to other developers. But it was really intresting and I share a lot with other people on Functional Programming.

I really enjoy this paradigm and how it helps developer to implements safe piece of code in a software! That’s why I’m starting to talk about it 😉

As always my slides are available on Speaker Deck!
