Mind the Gap Between the Wasm Future and the Present

Taylor Thomas - Cosmonic

Learn how to make the future work seamlessly with the present! This demo-heavy talk, led by experts, will show the pros and cons of the different options for integrating Wasm with current platforms like Kubernetes. You’ll leave with a clear idea of how to use Wasm in real situations today.

WebAssembly is a cool idea, but what does it look like to run it right now? The answer to that, whether we like it or not, will almost always involve Kubernetes. “How does Wasm interact with Kubernetes?” is a question every company, regardless of sector, wants to know.

Guided by two Kubernetes and Wasm experts, this talk will look at the two distinct ways Wasm integrate with Kubernetes. The first is “Wrapped,” meaning that we wrap Wasm to look and act like a container. The second is “Alongside,” meaning that we integrate with Kubernetes, extending it with the best of WebAssembly.

In this demo-heavy talk, we’ll explore the pros and cons of each approach, taking a close look at how each model operates and integrates with current tooling and processes. At the end of this session, attendees will have a clear understanding of the benefits and possible pitfalls of each approach, and the steps they can take to bring Wasm closer to the present while still looking forward to the future.
