WebAssembly is a binary instruction format for applications to run in a memory-constrained, stack-based virtual machine. The WebAssembly ecosystem consists of tools and projects that allow programs in a variety of languages to compile into WebAssembly and run in a safe, fast, sandboxed runtime environment.
WebAssembly is a transformative technology for the Internet. Most users will experience it as a set of gradual, incremental improvements to their online experiences. Pages will load faster and become more dynamic. Applications will become more secure. Infrastructure will become cheaper, and those cost savings will eventually reach the consumer.
For developers, WebAssembly opens a world of possibility. In today’s operating systems, the user can feel a big difference between applications that need a large client-side runtime (such as video editing tools, or render-heavy games such as Half Life) and applications that are more lightweight and can run entirely on the web (such as Twitter).
Tyler McMullen is the CTO at Fastly. He joins the show to talk about the compilation path, the runtime, and the opportunities of WebAssembly.
