General Development "Everyone seems to have a replacement for JavaScript - Google even has two. Now Microsoft has revealed that Anders Hejlsberg has been working on a replacement and it has released a preview of TypeScript. TypeScript is open source - Apache 2.0 license - and a superset of JavaScript. As you would expect from a Hejlsberg language it incorporates type checking, interfaces and lots of syntactic sugar."

And if you only know Javascript, HTML, and CSS? If you don't already know something like Python (Django) or Ruby (RoR) or Java (Spring), wouldn't learning a whole new language in addition to another GUI API (like GTK+ or Qt) and execution model miss the point of it?

No, that is rather a good excuse to learn something new.
