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.

Day two of the Tectonic 2015 Summit kicked off with New York City short stacks (three varieties!) and a panel discussion facilitated by The New Stack’s Managing Editor Joab Jackson, with support from The New Stack’s Technical Editor & Producer Benjamin Ball and contributor Lawrence Hecht. The panel:

  • Gabriel Monroy, CTO at Engine Yard and the creator of Deis
  • Matthew Brender, Developer Advocate, Software Defined Infrastructure team at Intel Corporation
  • Alex Polvi, Founder and CEO at CoreOS, Inc.

At the outset, Polvi promised, as a reward for those attending so early, that the panel would make things “as controversial as we possibly can,” the likelihood of which was increased by the numerous topics — container security, the enterprise adoption curve, DevOps as a job description, how to compete with AWS, the prospective lock-in with Kubernetes and which open source projects it will make redundant — served up in the electric atmosphere during this breezy session.

Any and all controversy that was to be had has been captured for this edition of The New Stack Analysts podcast.
