Lightning talk: Serverless Up and Running with Jim Hall
We’ll be doing a crash course on Serverless Framework with NodeJS and AWS. We will set up a basic REST api on the cloud in just a few minutes.
Serverless is a command-line tool for building and deploying cloud applications. It makes setting up infrastructure easy and works with AWS, Google Cloud, MS Azure and others.

Featured Talk: An Introduction to WebAssembly with Guy Royse
Guy is going to explain how WebAssembly works and how to use it in this talk. He'll cover what it is, how it fits into your application, and how to build and use your own WebAssembly modules. And, he'll demo how to build and use those modules with both Rust and the WebAssembly Text Format. That's right, he'll be live coding in an assembly language. He will also go over some online resources for other languages and tools that make use of WebAssembly.
Guy works for DataRobot in Columbus, Ohio as a Developer Evangelist. Combining his decades of experience in writing software with a passion for sharing what he has learned, Guy goes out into developer communities and helps others build great software.
In his personal life, Guy is a hard-boiled geek interested in role-playing games, science fiction, and technology. He also has a slightly less geeky interest in history and linguistics. In his spare time, he volunteers for his local Cub Scout Pack, goes camping, and studies history and linguistics.
Guy lives in Ohio with his wife, his three teenage sons, and an entire wall of games.
