WebAssembly: The Future of JS and a Multi-Language Web
80% of users are running browsers capable of running languages other than JS in their browser. It’s a new change, but an important one; we’re looking at a future where the web will be built not just on JS, but on C, Rust, even GoLang. Let’s talk about WebAssembly; why it came about, what it’s good at, and why it really doesn’t spell doom for JS but instead allows you to truly enhance web experiences by augmenting JS with the ability to use modules written in other languages that can perform tasks faster or more efficiently. We’ll go over what WebAssembly is, how to build a WebAssembly module, and why this may be a force that will shape not only how we think about JS, but the entire web experience.
A Tale of Diversifying Your Product Through Internationalization
Diversity isn’t just about the hiring process; it should be reflected in the product and the product’s code. Internationalization brings diversity to your product by forcing you to think about how users are consuming your product outside of your region. For example, will your CSS break when a translated word is longer than the original word? Or does your UI make no sense when copy needs to be read from right to left? Join me as I talk about how we’ve internationalized Cloudflare and the impact it’s making on designers, developers, and our customers.
Millie Chan is a Front-end Developer at Cloudflare and acts as a freelance watercolor illustrator and printmaker on the side.
