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.

Welcome to The New Stack Context, a podcast where we discuss the latest news and views from the cloud native community.

The Golden Age of Enterprise

This week, we’re recording from TechCrunch Sessions: Enterprise event in San Francisco, held September 5. Our interview guest is with Haley Daiber, a senior associate at Unusual Ventures, a seed-stage venture capital fund.

The New Stack has been talking and writing a lot about TechCrunch Sessions: Enterprise over the past few months, as a media partner and also a participant. We held a pancake breakfast and podcast panel in the morning and TNS founder Alex Williams moderated a session in the afternoon. And we were excited about this event because it signals a new excitement and heat in the enterprise software space. This has been evident so far in the keynotes we’ve heard today, at the event: Jason Green from Emergence Capital, for example, called this “the golden age of enterprise.” So we spoke with Daiber to talk about what enterprise software looks like from an investor’s perspective.

Then, later in the podcast, we discussed the week’s top stories and podcasts, including excellent contributed posts on adopting role-based access control for Kubernetes and migrating to Python 3. We also discuss a new service mesh, and how “punk rock” music from the 1970s resembles open source today.

Libby Clark, who is the editorial and marketing director at TNS, hosted this podcast, with the help of TNS founder and publisher Alex Williams and  Joab Jackson, managing editor at The New Stack.
