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.

VMware sponsored this podcast.

On this week’s episode of The New Stack Context podcast, we discuss one of our favorite yearly events, the All Things Open open source conference, held earlier this month in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Our guests for the week are Matthew Broberg, technical editor for Red Hat’s, and Anais Dotis-Georgiou, who is a developer advocate at InfluxData, as well as a speaker at the conference. We discussed the grassroots independence that makes All Things Open so enjoyable, as well as what open source trends we caught at this year’s show.

Then, later in the show, we discuss some of the top posts and podcasts for the week, including a wide-ranging interview with Pivotal’s Cornelia Davis, a tutorial on how to get the most from the ZFS file system on Ubuntu, how Microsoft has been making it easier for developers to use Kubernetes, as well as the state of Linux kernel open source after the recent wave of CPU-based vulnerabilities.

Libby Clark, editorial and marketing director at TNS hosted this podcast, along with Alex Williams, TNS founder and editor-in-chief, and Joab Jackson, TNS managing editor.

InfluxData, The Linux Foundation, Pivotal, and Red Hat are sponsors of The New Stack.
