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.

OpenStack Ocata: Containers all the Way Down

On Wednesday, the OpenStack community released OpenStack Ocata, the 15th version of this open source software for building cloud services. This release is of particular interest to us in how much it fully embraces containers. You might remember a year ago, we heard a lot of hyperbole of how containers and container orchestration engines could extinguish the need for OpenStack.

But now we are finding that are many useful ways of pairing OpenStack with containers. Ocata not only offers greater support for many containerization frameworks but also uses containers themselves to ease the process of installing and updating OpenStack.

We grabbed a few minutes with Jonathan Bryce, executive director of the OpenStack Foundation to learn more about Ocata and all the synergies that are coming with container usage, as well as talk a bit about the upcoming OpenStack Summit 2017, taking place May 8 – 11, in Boston.
