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 Kubernetes landscape has been altered slightly, so we talked to the movers behind the change. In this episode of The New Stack Makers podcast, we spoke with Sebastien Goasguen, the founder of Skippbox, a start-up that specialized in applications for managing the Kubernetes container orchestration engine. Today, cloud software package manager Bitnami announced that it is acquiring Skippbox, so our discussion ranged from the acquisition to also include Sebastien’s experience with customers using Kubernetes.

In this episode, we talk about Bitnami’s motivations for the acquisition, and what it will change for how they approach the Kubernetes ecosystem. We also ask Sebastien about his experience building on top of Kubernetes, including solutions such as Kompose and Kubeless. He shares the experiences of some customers, as well as what he sees as forthcoming topics of interest for the Kubernetes community:
