Microsoft Unveils a Superset of JavaScript Called TypeScript

At Izenda, we see many organizations shift from ASP.NET and MVC to use pure JavaScript for their front end. The advantage is, the database developer can focus on creating a secure and scalable backend, while HTML designers can craft a slick UI.  We are focused on HTML5 being the front-technology for future versions of our ad-hoc reporting products while retaining a .NET backend that integrates with RESTful services. In this video, Anders Hejlsber, a developer at Microsoft, demonstrates a superset of JavaScript called TypeScript, which is designed to overcome the limits of JavaScript.
