Assembling the Web - A Tour of WebAssembly

WebAssembly. It's coming to JavaScript. But...what exactly is it? Is it a new VM? A way to create a binary version of JavaScript? A new standard to get everyone to code in C/C++ for the web? In this session, we'll demystify WebAssembly, demonstrate exactly what it is, and provide insight into how this will affect JavaScript and web development in the future.

We'll likely follow up the talk with some WoodGrain or a walk to Monk's.
