TypeScript & Azure DevOps – ToolRunner


As you may notice, I’m a huge fan of TypeScript and I’m really proud to be an active developer of the Paris community. I love TypeScript because this langage is awesome and it works great with Node.js. Most of the time, I teach TypeScript to other developers and I always try to do my best to impart my passion for this langage. On another hand, as a Microsft PFE, I don’t have a lot of time to build softwares… That’s why I spend some of my personal time to build open source projects.

TypeScript can be used with many SDK to create usefull stuff for the community. Good examples are Visual Studio Code and Azure DevOps extensions. Both are my favorites Microsoft’s tools. I want to learn Rust this summer, unfortunately Azure DevOps doesn’t support this langage, so I decide to build a dedicated extension (available here). It’s also a good opportunity to talk about the Azure DevOps task library and the ToolRunner!

TypeScript & Cucumber – Getting started


In february, I did a presentation with my friend Julien Pavon at Paris TypeScript meetup on Behavior Driven Development. It was really great to talk about this methodology and feedbacks from attendees were really constructive. We explained what is BDD and how to use it with TypeScript. To prepare this speech, I used the new version of Cucumber.js (one of the most popular BDD framework). To be honest I found that previous Cucumber versions have some issues but the version 4 fixes a lot of them… It’s now really better and I have to admit that I love this version! Let’s take a look on that 😉

Blog migration – TypeScript focus!


It has been a long time since I wrote technical posts. So much time that my posts were completely outdated… Last weekend I decided to migrate my blog and translate every post in english. To be honest it was easier to remove all the previous technical contents instead of translate them!

A page has been turned, I have now a strong engagement as a field engineer on TypeScript, especially with the Paris community and Microsoft customers. It’s time for me to stop using my old friend C# on my private time. I will now only focus myself on TypeScript.

In the next few weeks, I will push some articles on Inversify, Cucumber, Node.js, Express and VSTS.

Stay tuned!
