SharePoint App and JavaScript CSOM.

Major change in Microsoft SharePoint 2013 development Module  is SharePoint Apps . Previously We have 2 types of solution in SharePoint 2010 1  Farm Solution and  Sandbox Solution. Farm Solution  used full server side SharePoint API and Run SharePoint worker Process. And Sandbox have few limitations  and partially trusted solution which run under the site collection. The biggest change in SharePoint 2013 is App  Solution. Where everything is running outside the SharePoint . App Module is all about HTML 5 , Javascript, Jquery , CSS , Json, JavaScript CSOM. Mainly.  Microsoft greatly enhanced and improved JavaScript CSOM. To meet the Enterprise Development Requirement. SharePoint 2013 Developers need more JavaScript skills to build  large scalable Apps based on JavaScript CSOM. Which required better and highly-productive development tools .Which helps to build robust Apps. So Answer is Typescript,light switch Visual Studio 2012.

                                      
Typescript
The typescript is designed by Microsoft language for Large JavaScript based Application and Module Development .The typescript is a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript. And Provide great OOP advantages. You can create
Optional types, classes, and modules to develop large JavaScript programs. Its free and Open Source language which designed by Anders Hejlsberg lead architect of C#. You can extend JavaScript syntax without any changes. Typescript plugin is
Available for Visual Studio 2012 where you can get maximum advantage of working on strong typing and intelligence.  Which make your JavaScript Development Very easy.

Might be at some later stage Microsoft Will Provide that OOB. But now thank to the Passionate Typescript Community. MVP Andrey Markeev and  Stas Vyshchepan. Create Open Source  Type Script Definitions  for SharePoint Project on Codeplex . Advantages of SharePoint Type Script Definitions is when you are working on SharePoint 2013 App Module or JavaScript CSOM.
