There is a new language on the block. It’s from one of the most prolific language gurus of our time, Anders Hejlsberg. Yes, the list of languages that many of us have used were created by him, it’s really impressive. Anders is a Danish Computer Software Engineer who started his career by creating a Pascal compiler that eventually became Turbo Pascal. He later joined Borland and was the Chief Architect of the team that developed Delphi. When Borland started to falter he joined Microsoft.
This was at a critical juncture in the history of computer languages. Java was created by James Gosling in 1994. In the late 1990’s, Microsoft wanted to evolve the Java language and after being blocked to influence the language, chose to go their own separate way with C#. This lead to years of comparisons and competition between two fundamentally similar languages C# and Java.
It’s great to see what good solutions are built when giants collaborate rather than compete. What are you waiting for? Go try out the tutorial on Angular 2.0 and learn some TypeScript for yourself.
