WebAssembly: Revolution, Not Evolution

John Feminella   

The revolution is coming, and it won’t be televised — but it *will* be in your browser. In some cases, it’s already here, and it’s called WebAssembly.

In this talk, we’ll explore the sweeping ramifications that WebAssembly is having on the way forward-thinking organizations are writing software. First, we’ll review how it works and what’s unique to WebAssembly as an environment and execution framework. We’ll dig into specific architectures and explore what kinds of new approaches are made possible in this new world.

By the end of the talk, you should feel well-equipped to treat the Web as a platform, and understand how to bring the WebAssembly approach back to your own applications.
