Talk 1: V8, Web Assembly, and Serverless: a new way of thinking about edge computing

As we build more and more complicated applications on the web, we need new and better ways to solve more difficult problems. Web assembly presents an interesting way to allow the browser to tap into other languages, like C and Rust, to create application features. But does that mean JS is on its way out? How does WebAssembly actually make a difference? And is it a browser technology, or can it be used to change the way we think about serverless application development?

Kas Perch (they/their/them) is a Developer Advocate at Cloudflare by day, and a Twitch Code/Hardware streamer, IoT author, and gamer by night. They love talking about serverless architecture, Web Assembly, IoT and its implications, and a myriad of other topics. They’ll also totally show you a million pics of their 2 cats if you let them.
