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.

Microservice Architectures for the Enterprise

This week on The New Stack Context podcast we discuss how the enterprise can deploy microservices, with two authors of the recently published book, “Microservices for the Enterprise: Designing, Developing, and Deploying.” Kasun Indrasiri is the director of integration architecture, for WSO2 — a sponsor of The New Stack — and Prabath Siriwardena, vice president of security architecture for WSO2.

The book delves into the key challenges and solutions around building microservices in a vendor-neutral way. Microservice fundamentals are explained via use cases from the enterprise software architecture. The book covers integrating microservice and eliminating the central Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), selecting the best Inter-service communication technique for your service, API Management and Governance of microservices and much more. In the podcast, we discussed the challenges of bringing microservices to the enterprise, with the authors offering many practical tips.

In the second half of the podcast, we discuss the some of the posts this week from the site, including the latest Docker vulnerability, as well as a step-by-step tutorial on using WSO2’s Ballerina programming language with Amazon Web Services’ Lambda serverless service. We also wrap up some leftover news from KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2019, which was held in Barcelona earlier this month. We also discuss a recent podcast with Maddie Patrichi, senior software developer for Oracle, and Gregg Altschul, co-founder and CTO, for Autom8.Network, who chat about new services and tools continue to emerge for cloud native deployments.

KubeCon + CloudNativeCon, Oracle, Twistlock, and WSO2 are sponsors of The New Stack.
