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: VMware and OpenFaaS, Chef InSpec, HPE OneSphere

Hello, welcome to The New Stack Context, a podcast where we review the week’s hottest news in cloud-native technologies/at-scale application development and look ahead to topics we expect will gain more attention in coming weeks.

This week, from a snowy Portland Oregon, we spoke with Alex Ellis, founder of OpenFaaS. Ellis has hired on to VMware to work full time on the OpenFaaS serverless software, as part of VMware’s new Open Source Technology Center. Until now, Ellis has been working on OpenFaaS in his spare time while holding down a day job as an application developer at ADP. We spoke with him about why he made the decision to join VMware and what it means for the OpenFaaS community.

We also discuss Chef’s latest update to its security compliance and automation tool InSpec, and spoke with The New Stack editor-in-chief Alex Williams about a three-part New Stack Makers podcast series we just wrapped up with HPE that focuses on some of the challenges enterprise IT and developers have in moving to new cloud-native architectures.

The New Stack editorial director Libby Clark hosted this week’s edition of Context, along with The New Stack managing editor Joab Jackson.


Chef, HPE, and VMware are sponsors of The New Stack.
