I got a call from the Atlanta Microsoft Meetup Group, who asked if I would like to give a presentation. I was currently embroiled in a debate at work concerning if we should switch to ES6 from CoffeeScript, so I was interested in exploring that topic further. Unfortunately, neither of those were Microsoft-specific technologies, so I added TypeScript to loop back in the Microsoft developers. The talk was in a small room, and had around 30 people in attendance.
I titled it just as I thought about it, but it turned out to the title hit a lot of different search queries on Google:
- TypeScript vs ES6
- ES6 vs TypeScript
- CoffeeScript vs TypeScript
- TypeScript vs CoffeeScript
Essentially, any permutation of those three technologies with a “vs” in between would return my Slides on Slideshare. As a result, the number of views has steadily increased, making it my most popular talk to date.
