Functional TypeScript

TypeScript is an odd duck. A language designed by C# engineers of an object-oriented persuasion. But built on JavaScript, a slapdash ode to Scheme. Is there room for both approaches? Of course! We're engineers. We just use what suits us and happily ignore the rest! This talk reduces TypeScript to the features functional programmers love. Get ready for a lot of interfaces and generics, and not one mention of classes or (shudder) access modifiers.
