WebAssembly: A Recovering Kubernetes Engineer's View of the Future


As a long time Kubernetes user, it can be real confusing what all of this hype around WebAssembly (Wasm) means for the future. Join Taylor, a long-time Kubernetes community member and contributor, as he talks about Wasm; how and why it should be used; and what you can do to experiment with it. This talk will be focused on concrete strengths and weaknesses of both Kubernetes and Wasm, with a practical (and live!) demonstration of how they can be used to alongside one another. Using the CNCF sandbox project wasmCloud, Taylor will show how Wasm can be used as a complement to Kubernetes to solve many of the pain points of running applications today. To finish, Taylor will provide some practical advice on how you can try things out and get involved!
