If you know of great videos – particularly those produced by partners, please drop me a line and let me know.

Enjoy!

Announcing TypeScript Preview for Visual Studio

Today, Soma announced on his blog the preview release of a new, open source project called TypeScript.  TypeScript adds optional types, classes and modules to JavaScript so that developer can make better tooling for large-scale JavaScript applications.  TypeScript comes with a cross-platform compiler that allows developers to code in TypeScript and output standards-based JavaScript for any browser or host.

Along with the language features of TypeScript itself, Microsoft is also announcing the release of an extension for Visual Studio 2012 which provides a cool tooling experience with Intellisense, refactoring support and as-you-type error reporting, just like you’d expect from Visual Studio.

You can learn more about TypeScript via the following links:

Go get it – it looks really cool!

Windows Azure Resources

Similar to what I did with Windows Phone, I’ve created a page to host a bunch links to some useful Windows Azure resources.

This list is NOT meant to be a comprehensive list of all things Azure, but is intended instead to be a living organism that grows and matures over time. I will do my best to keep it fed and well nourished, but if there are things that you think are missing, or would like to see here, then drop me a line and let me know.
