6:00- 6:45: Dave Doherty, "WebAssembly and You”
6:45 - 7:30 Robert Masen, "WASI, the promise of Wasm Outside of the Web”
7:30 - 8:00 Fishbowl Conversation
Dave Doherty develops the Atomsmith web apps that science educators use to engage students through the use of high performance physics-based 3D simulation and visualization. On the front end, he employs technologies such as React, WebGL, and WebAssembly (used to compile Atomsmith's simulation and visualization engines from C++). On the back end, he uses a lot of node.js, express.js, and MongoDB. Dave spent many years developing and optimizing science and engineering codes on supercomputers and he's waiting for the day that the llvm compiler can compile Fortran to WebAssembly.
Robert Masen is a software developer with a keen interest in emerging technologies like Rust and Web Assembly.
