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.

This Week in News: Enterprise Serverless and Voice-Driven IT Management

This week on The New Stack Context podcast, we spoke with Jenny Gao, an investor at Bessemer Venture Partners, about the adoption of serverless technologies in the enterprise.  We explore the future of serverless and whether it’s feasible, or maybe even likely, for companies to just skip over containers altogether and go directly to a serverless architecture. Gao co-authored a piece for The New Stack this week that summarizes the investment firm’s interviews with dozens of enterprises about leveraging serverless technology.

We also talk about the evolution of “instant operations” in the form of voice commands. Can ops teams run their day-to-day duties, coordinate incident response, and receive status updates using a Siri-like virtual assistant? PagerDuty thinks so and they have a name for this next wave of digital operations: “VoiceOps.” This week on The New Stack, PagerDuty contributed a piece about a project its been working on to create a virtual assistant for its incident response management platform. We discuss the implications here.

TNS Editorial Director Libby Clark hosted this episode and was joined by TNS Managing Editor Joab Jackson.
