Our mission is to build and nurture a thriving community of Software Developers in St. John’s by providing a place to connect, share new ideas, and learn from each other. NDev features monthly tech talks from members of the software development community that will always be free to attend. We encourage anyone interested in software development regardless of skill level to join, attend one of our Meetups, and meet new friends and mentors! Feel free to join us on Slack as well at http://slack.ndev.co/
We're welcoming Mitchell Hynes, Full-Stack Engineer at ReportMate and Get Coding coach, to discuss the new proposals put forth by WebAssembly and how they will change the way we build apps in the next 5 years. Mitchell will cover:
Computing at large has come a long way from POSIX. The web has become a platform for content-rich apps that are portable and accessible to all. But what about the apps that don’t belong on the web or need to work without an internet connection? What if our apps could be written in any language we choose and would be portable enough to truly write-once-run-anywhere? How does that change the game when it comes to dynamic-linking and blur the lines between programming languages? The Web Assembly Component Model will completely change how we all write apps in the next 5 years.
