Don't miss the inaugural Architecture Matters event where we're joined by Brian Sletten, who'll be telling us more about WebAssembly!
Over twenty years ago we got excited about the ability to write code that will work on just about any platform. While that has succeeded in some ways on the backend, the client side of application development has moved to the Web. Modern browsers have access to user interface elements that look good across platforms, application frameworks are getting increasingly reusable and powerful, hardware acceleration has been brought to the world of 2D, 3D and audio/video playback capabilities. WebRTC introduces new collaboration tools to enrich our Web-based interactions.
Now, WebAssembly is in the early stages of bringing other development choices to the table so we can truly start to imagine applications that will run consistently across platforms, but inside and outside of the browser environment. This will now give us the benefits of the Web with modern desktop-class user interface experiences.
So, where does that leave the desktop?
Come hear about how WebAssembly is likely to upend our industry in exciting new ways.
