Abstract Classes

typescript abstract classes

A recent addition to TypeScript 1.6 was the inclusion of abstract classes. If you are not familiar with abstract classes, Microsoft has a nice descriptionhere. The key is that abstract classes cannot be instantiated on their own. Their purpose in life is to be extended and are used as a base class for other classes.

Simple Types in TypeScript

TypeScript by it’s very name provides Types to JavaScript. This is incredibly handy while writing your code to quickly decipher what your code is doing, not just for yourself, but anyone else that may need to maintain your code. The compiler will help protect you from yourself.
