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.

Data backup and recovery used to be a chore at best, but that may finally be changing. In this episode of The New Stack Makers podcast, we spoke to Chris Wahl, chief technical evangelist at storage software vendor Rubrik.

Rubrik is trying to bring a greater focus to backup and cloud data management while also making it easier to enable other parts of the business. Wahl told us about his experience in the past with data backup and recovery, and how it wasn’t always an area he looked forward to handling. We talked about how data backup affects data center decisions, the necessity of using APIs, and how new users bring Rubrik into their organizations. We also learned more about the recent Rubrik 3.1 release and their future product roadmap.
