Help me WebAssembly, you're my only hope!

Jay Phelps at React Rally 2018

WebAssembly (aka wasm) is a new, standardized compilation target for the web, shipping in all modern browsers. But since it's so low level it can be difficult to see how it will revolutionize the next generation of web apps–and definitely not just games and C++! In this talk I will reveal what it is, how you can use it today, and the incredible opportunities it will unlock in the years to come on both the Web and on Desktop. We'll also explore how React itself might some day use WebAssembly to power it's Virtual DOM.
