Will JavaScript type annotations kill TypeScript?
The creators of Svelte and Turbo 8 both dropped TS recently saying that "it's not worth it".
Yes: If JavaScript gets type annotations then there's no reason for TypeScript to exist.
No: TypeScript remains the best language for structuring large enterprise applications.
TBD: The existing user base and its corpensource owner means that TypeScript isn’t likely to reach EOL without a putting up a fight.
I hope they both die. I mean, if you really need strong types in the browser then you could leverage WASM and use a real programming language.
I don’t know and I don’t care.

10-Min Survey: Data Streaming’s Role in Application Architecture

Lightbend sponsored this post.

Data streaming technology has become increasingly important for informing business decision-making in real-time. Cloud native architectures are taking more advantage of streaming data for traditional analytics, operational insights and systems management. And new use cases such as artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) and real-time personalization are emerging.

To better understand how and why data streaming is used in cloud applications, Lightbend has partnered with The New Stack for its second annual survey on fast data trends. The results will surface use cases for data streaming technologies, focusing on the choices and challenges of the technologists who manage architectures with data streaming requirements, including emerging cloud native architecture. We’re looking to uncover insights based on questions like:

  • How are developers, DevOps and architects using stream processing in their applications?
  • Which workloads see increasing use of this technology?
  • What challenges are you facing in production?
  • What benefits does the use of real-time data bring to your business, applications and/or infrastructure?

Please take our 10-minute survey. Lightbend will donate $1 for every response to the nonprofit Girls Who Code to help close the gender gap in technology. The results will be shared publicly in a Lightbend report and on The New Stack.

Your responses will give the industry at large a better understanding around important trends in data streaming technology and how it’s affecting cloud application architecture decisions.

Thank you for helping us collect the best data possible!
