Web Assembly with Lin Clark

WebAssembly is fast. It’s being called “the future of the web”. Its speed and potential have major browser vendors working together to make it a reality. And it’s on its way—the MVP hit multiple browsers in October of last year. But what makes it fast? Starting from the basics, this talk will walk you through what WebAssembly is, and then why it’s fast.

Lin Clark is a code cartoonist. She takes software concepts and architectures and turns them into stick figure cartoons. She also works in Mozilla's Emerging Technologies group, where she gets to tinker with new browser technologies like WebAssembly. Follow Lin on Twitter. (

Web Security with Johann Hofmann

Browser security improvements is important and in this talk, we will address how you can prepare your site with new web permissions model and keep away from insecure HTTP.

Johann is a Firefox Engineer at Mozilla working on browser security & privacy features. Follow Johann on Twitter. (

Rust with Florian Gilcher

Rust is not a hype, it is a much-needed solution. Rust is a new systems programming language, currently finding its way into the software industry. It's hard to not see it in tech news today. But why the high interest? This talk will guide you through why investing effort into Rust will help you and your organisation in many ways.

Florian is a founding member of the Rust community team and has been using the language for 4 years. The openness and eagerness of the project to attract experts for every aspect made him stick with it and love it very much. He co-founded the Rust Hack and Learn in Berlin. Follow Florian @argorak.
