    ❗ Please register at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/modernjavascript-runtimes-tickets-58109826054 ❗ Join us at 7pm on the 28th of March for the inaugural MJS meetup for a look into the future of JavaScript. The event is taking place at Google's NYC campus, in the same space where the TC39 will be meeting earlier in the day. You can look forward to talks about new JavaScript platforms, technologies that are going to change the way we think about writing JavaScript, and how abstractions from the JavaScript language are changing the way internet providers think about multi-tenancy. A system interface for WebAssembly - by Lin Clark and Till Schneidereit WebAssembly brought many benefits of native development, such as predictable performance, to the web. But the web has its own benefits to offer—portability and the security model. Can we take these benefits in the other direction, and bring them to native? In this talk, we'll walk through a design for a system interface that brings the benefits of the web to outside-the-browser use cases. Deno, A secure JavaScript/TypeScript runtime - by Ryan Dahl Deno is a new command-line program for executing JavaScript and TypeScript built using V8, Rust, and Tokio. The goal is to provide users with a convenient tool for dynamic programming using familiar browser-like APIs. Trading backward compatibility for modernity, Deno is built around the new "ES module" standard. Third party imports are done via URLs, which Deno can fetch out-of-the-box, thus providing a standards-based distributed module system. Like in the browser, by default code is securely sandboxed - so users can run unaudited scripts with some confidence. Also...
