Web browsers and cloud services today alike deal with having to execute untrusted third party code and have to trade off between its functionality and the security of the system it is run on. WebAssembly is a new spec that is gaining traction as a technology that satisfies this need. You can now bring glorious desktop software to the web world with ease and write code that runs in secure and resource constrained environments such as edge servers. Come join us at this meetup to learn about this emerging technology and how it can benefit your work.
This session's focus will be on why WebAssembly is a good fit for serverless. We will explore Cloudflare's & Fastly's offerings in this space and look at how WebAssembly is leveraged.
