Robert Aboukhalil
Bioinformatics Software Engineer, Invitae
“A Whirlwind Tour of WebAssembly”
JavaScript was born in the late 90's and, for over 20 years, was the only scripting language you could use reliably in a browser. That all changed in 2017, when WebAssembly came onto the scene. This talk is an introduction to WebAssembly: what it is, why it's awesome, and how to start using it. As concrete examples, I'll present two applications I built where WebAssembly helped enable both high performance and code re-use.

Drew Wallis
Director of Education, NWA3D
“How digital manufacturing (and specifically 3D printing) is changing the way we learn and interact with the world”

Stay tuned for more updates on speakers & talk details!
