A talk by a member of the typescript team at Microsoft, about modern typescript's goal to align itself very closely to the javascript syntax and how it would be harmful for it to even contemplate to deviate significantly from javascript. He almost says that enums were a mistake, when they were introduced into the language seven years ago and do not have a proper equivalent in javascript (which can come up with its own enums eventually):

But what's also interesting is the beginning and the end of the talk. In the beginning, while introducing himself, he says that he has previously worked on a "cultural tool" that "allows you to create linter rules around how pull request etiquette works". And in the end, he finishes by saying: "I believe that black lives matter. I also believe that you should go protest if there is something in your city."
