Kiandra Senior Dev to present at Web Directions

Kiandra is proud to announce that one of its Senior Developers, Alex Mackey, will be presenting “TypeScript and Terminators” at the Web Directions Code Conference in May.

Web Directions is a must attend event for web professionals who care about code, and involves two days of intense learning, connecting and geeking out.

TypeScript is a new language from Microsoft that is a superset of JavaScript and provides some awesome functionality such as static typing, better IDE support, and an easy to use way to develop classes and interfaces. In his session Alex will be using the grossly underused medium of Schwarzenegger films to explain just what TypeScript is, why you might want to use it and when you should avoid it.

Alex is very active in the development community, having spoken at a number of large conferences including TechEd, Remix and Australian ALM. Alex also runs the development conference DDD Melbourne and penned the books Introducing .NET 4.0 and Introducing .NET 4.5 for Apress.

Needless to say I’ve reserved my seat!
