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 weekly wrap-up podcast of all the news and events from the week. This week, we come live from the Monitorama conference, held this week in Portland, where we spoke with Liz Fong Jones, developer advocate at observability service provider and Quintessence Anx, developer advocate, at ELK as a Service provider

With Jones and Anx, we discussed the culture of burnout in the IT industry and how companies can better consider the humans who design and run their systems. We also discussed our takeaways from the conference itself.
