This month we're sponsored by Cloudflare. We have two talks from Steve Klabnik and Lachlan Sneff.

The Meetup will be recorded and videos will be linked here after the event.

Agenda:

6:30pm - Doors open
6:45-7:30pm - Building WebAssembly modules with Rust, Steve Klabnik
7:45-8:30pm - WebAssembly in the Kernel, Lachlan Sneff

About the talks:

*Building WebAssembly modules with Rust*

In this talk, Steve is going to show you how you can write web applications in Rust. We'll discuss:

* The basics of building a webassembly module
* Interacting with browser APIs
* How Rust's tooling makes this easy, and which tools you can use
* Interesting Rust packages you may want to try with WebAssembly

*WebAssembly in the Kernel*

This talk will cover what Nebulet (github.com/nebulet/nebulet) is, his experience writing it, what we can learn from Nebulet, and why it needs to exist.
