About the talks:

*Beyond the Browser: Getting Started with Serverless WebAssembly*

WebAssembly has proved to be a powerful tool for porting applications to the web and for speeding up data-intensive apps. In this talk, we explore how serverless WebAssembly can be equally powerful, and how to get started using it.

*Build Your Own WebAssembly Compiler*

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.
