Talk: Typescript - A developer friendly Javascript

Pradip Hudekar

The talk will be focused on the benefits of Typescript from developers’ perspective. During the session we will go through simple code samples to demonstrate how ‘typesafety’ in Typescript can help us catch errors at compile time, resulting in a faster development cycle. This also enables IDEs to provide better refactoring and intellisense support to boost development of large chunks of code. We will also take a look at how Typescript can help in modularization of huge projects with the help of ‘Modules’.

02:15 PM - 03:00 PM

Talk: Building a bookshelf with Bookshelf.js and Ember.js

Abhimanyu Chakravarty

We will try and build a small application using Bookshelf.js and Ember.js and go over the benefits of using a javascript ORM like Bookshelf which not only gives us the standard relation mapping but also the freedom to create custom queries, eager loading and dynamic relations.
