Bootstrapping a startup with SailsJS
Simon Birchall

Over the last 18 months I have bootstrapped my startup using SailsJS. What did I learn? What do you get out of the box? How has the project evolved? Am I happy with my choice 18 months later?
I have previously used Rails, ASP.MVC and Laravell. I had decided on Node for the backend - but what framework would I choose? What do I really need? What can I trust? How does SailsJS differ to the aforementioned frameworks and how much bang can my buck get?

Hi, I'm Simon, physics graduate, software engineer, team lead and now technical co-founder of Kiffgo.com. As the technical co-founder I had some stack decisions to make. I arrived at Node + SailsJS. From webpack integration, unit testing to production deployment I've done it with SailsJS and am willing to share my experience.


Build your own WebAssembly Compiler
Colin Eberhardt

For more than 20 years JavaScript has been the only 'native' language of the web. That's all changed with the release of WebAssembly. In the coming years, you'll see people writing web apps in Rust, C#, C++ and all manner of other languages. But just what is WebAssembly? And what’s all the fuss about? WebAssembly is a low-level compilation target, which means that it is unlikely you’ll use it directly. However, as developers and hackers, we love to know how technology works! In this talk, Colin will look at some of the internals of WebAssembly, explore how it works ‘under the hood’, and look at how you can create your own (simple) compiler that targets this runtime.

About me - I'm a technology enthusiast, working for a consultancy by day, and enjoying myself with open source by night. Here's my blog: blog.scottlogic.com/ceberhardt/ if you want to find out more about me! I'm a keen WebAssembly enthusiast, I run WebAssembly weekly: wasmweekly.news/ and did quite a few 'scene setting' talks on WebAssembly last year.
