WebAssembly: Open to Interpretation

Webassembly has been doing the rounds for a little while now. It's implemented in all major browsers, and we've seen several large, typically desktop-only apps use it to run on the web. Not to mention DOOM, of course.

This makes Webassembly seem intimidating, surely there must be a lot to if if we've got apps like Photoshop standing atop it. But how big and scary is it? Can I pick it up in an afternoon? Turns out Webassembly isn't that different to tinkering on, say, a Raspberry Pi, Arduino or even a BBC Micro.

Join me in this talk where I run through the foundational corners of webassembly and aim to inspire you to have a dabble yourself!
