19:00 - "WebAssembly: Changing the Web Forever?" by James Milner (a Google Developer Expert from London)
20:00 - Q&A
The rise of WebAssembly support in browsers has allowed companies such as AutoCad and Figma to rethink their web applications, games engines such as Unity to turbo power their libraries and even consumer sites like eBay to improve their user experience.
The real question on everyone's minds is, will it cause a paradigm shift in how we build applications as web developers? This talk will attempt to answer this question by giving a grounding in what WebAssembly is, then dig into its use cases and what the future holds for it. Attendees can expect to understand where WebAssembly lies in the ecosystem and what it provides to those building apps today and how it might change the web going forward.
