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.

By now, even most large organizations have realized the benefits that accrue with using open source software — the collective hive mind that fixes bugs and develops new features at a faster pace than any commercial software company could match. Yet, companies in highly regulated industries, such as the banking, face considerable regulatory hurdles in using open source software. In this New Stack Makers interview, Jared Smith, director of Open Source Community Outreach at Capital One, talks about how the company worked through these challenges to enjoy the benefits of open source.
