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.

The New Stack Context: SaltStack Does Orchestration and Linus Torvalds’ Apology

This week on the TNS Context podcast, we talk with Alex Peay, SaltStack vice president of product, and Gary Richmond, a SaltStack product manager, about automated security compliance scanning and event-based orchestration. Also joining us today is TNS founder and editor-in-chief Alex Williams and TNS managing editor Joab Jackson.

Jackson was in Salt Lake City this month covering SaltConf, where Peay and Richmond spoke about event-driven automation and orchestration using SaltStack Enterprise. The company’s configuration management and remote execution engine is a stepping stone for automated IT operations, offering a way to automate the checking and remediation of desired configurations. We discuss the promise of automated security remediation with Peay, and venture into event-driven orchestration with Richmond,

Then later in the show, we discussed some of the top stories on the site this week, including a story by TNS correspondent Jennifer Riggins on Linus Torvalds’ most recent apology and decision to take some time off of Linux kernel development to work on his people skills.
