NYCHTML5 will be hosting our March 2018 meetup on March 20th at ZX Ventures, right on the 24th St between the 6th and the 7th Avenues.
The event will consist of two technical talks, along with friendly conversations, food, drinks and beer.
Building Conclave: A Decentralized, Real-Time, Collaborative Editor - by Sun-Li Beatteay
Conclave is a decentralized, real-time, collaborative text editor for the browser. This talk will focus on the challenges that the Conclave team faced and their solutions. These topics include how to create a decentralized application using modern browser technology, maintaining consistency in a distributed architecture, and how to cheaply scale a real-time application to handle dozens of concurrent users. For anyone interested in dApps, distributed systems or fun open source projects, you won't want to miss this presentation.
A Brief History of WebAssembly - by Wayne Gerard
WebAssembly (wasm) is a standard that allows for developing applications in languages like C/C++ with the ability to run them on the web at near native speed. We’ll take a look at WebAssembly’s roots in NaCl and asm.js, where it is today, and go through a brief demonstration of a simple application built on-top of this technology.
See you at our event!
