One of the biggest developments in web technology in the last few years is the emergence of WASM - Web Assembly. But what is WASM? Can you use it in your web projects? Should you? And if so… how?
In this talk, you’ll get a gentle introduction to WASM, covering both the history and theory, and the practical approaches you’ll need as an author of WASM code. You’ll learn about the tools that exist to help you write WASM code, and how to use those tools as part of your Python web projects today. You’ll also learn what the future may hold for Python on the web.
