WebAssembly Presented by Phil Denoncourt

175 Canal St

Google tells you that WebAssembly is “a binary instruction format for a stack-based virtual machine.” This understated and opaque description belies the power behind it. During this talk, we'll understand what WebAssembly is, what it does, and why it's important. We'll go over how to utilize it in the JavaScript ecosystem and look at some of the pitfalls. Phil Denoncourt is a software consultant, helping businesses reach their goals utilizing Angular, Ionic and React frameworks. With over 20 years of software development experience, Phil also has vast amounts of experience with .NET, SQL, and (gasp) COBOL. He speaks at many venues in the New England Area on a variety of development topics. Phil is certified in a host of .NET Technologies. When not spending time with his children, or hacking various gadgets, Phil is an avid fan of Boston teams.

I am one of their distinguished faculty members, part of the Python Product Advisory Board, and have been nominated for a GAccolade award. Before teaching, I was a software engineer at a startup. I blog a lot about code and my life as a developer. My blog posts have had over 900k reads and have been featured on DEV's top 7, the top spot on HackerNews, FreeCodeCamp, and in JSWeekly. I'm also a director for Women Who Code DC, a co-founder of the Art Code Collective, and the DC Chapter Lead for Vue Vixens.
