From Wazero to Wazhero: An Introduction to Wazero for Gophers and Other Species - Edoardo Vacchi, Tetrate.io

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

Are you a gopher or a crab? A wyvern or a penguin? This talk will be equally relevant to you, regardless of your species! Learn more about wazero runtime, how it may help you, and how the maintainers strive to be a good citizen of the wider Wasm ecosystem while realizing a fast and efficient runtime that works great with the Go toolchain!
. . .
You are a Gopher. You wake up confused. It looks like you are in a Cloud. You don't remember how you got there.

There are several large Containers, and a few tiny packages with a label: “Some (Web)Assembly Required.”

You are excited to find several WebAssembly runtimes. You find that it is easy to plug them into your Go project. There is only one catch: most of them are meant for a different language runtime.

Your cross-platform build becomes slow and compromised, you can no longer rely on all the features of your runtime, your performance becomes less predictable. You retire to your burrow and hide in shame.

Would you like to play again and try wazero: the zero-dependency WebAssembly runtime for Go?
