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 Future of Data Is in Streaming

On this week’s episode of The New Stack Context podcast, we speak with Mark Brewer, CEO of Lightbend, as well as with Lawrence Hecht, research director and columnist at The New Stack, about the current state and future of data streaming technology.

The New Stack recently partnered with our sponsor Lightbend to produce a survey on data streaming. Lightbend released the results of that survey last week and the report is titled “Streaming Data And The Future Tech Stack,” and it’s all about how developers and software architects are using data streaming in their applications today. For the podcast, Brewer shares his top takeaways from the survey, and Hecht discusses how he analyzed the numbers and what his conclusions were. We also talked a bit about Lightbend’s Akka message-driven runtime.

We also discussed the top news of the week, including VMware’s purchase of Bitnami, Intel’s new special-purpose Linux hypervisor for cloud native workloads, and New Relic’s platform for the future, New Relic One.

Libby Clark, editorial and marketing director at The New Stack, hosted this episode, with the usual support from Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack, and Joab Jackson, TNS managing editor.

Lightbend, New Relic, and VMware are sponsors of The New Stack.
