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.

At the end of an action-packed Cloud Foundry Summit Silicon Valley 2017 earlier this month, Abby Kearns, the Cloud Foundry Foundation executive director, sat down with TNS founder Alex Williams to ponder a very challenging year ahead. Kubo, the platform’s new lifecycle manager that integrates Kubernetes, is now production-ready. And while you’d expect such a move to draw attention and participation from Google, Microsoft coming closer into the fold — as the Foundation’s newest gold-level member, changes the ball game somewhat.
