>> Matthias Endler <<

Matthias is a programming aficionado from Düsseldorf, feeling right at home in the lower levels of the computing stack.
For his day job, he's working on Website Performance at trivago. At night, he's putting on his Batman cape to write emulators and WebAssembly modules.
He also used to have a YouTube channel called "Hello, Rust!" which he is planning to revive since one year. "It will be back one day", he promises.

WebAssembly is neither "web" nor "assembly" - but 100% amazing. It is our one chance to build a fast, safe, and universal compilation target for all languages and all platforms.
Let me show you why this is cool and how to get started with WebAssembly in Go, C, and Rust.
We will also learn about up and coming features of WebAssembly (like WASI) that will make it even faster and more versatile. Let's change the way we write software forever!
