Wasm, Kubernetes, Native, or What Else? An Enterprise Architecture Debrief - Sean Isom, ex-Adobe

WebAssembly represents the future of portable computing, providing an efficient and secure runtime for many languages. In the last year there has been an explosion of growth in Wasm on the backend, from managed platforms, tooling, and further standardization work around WASI. All of this leads us towards the vision of "Write Once, Run Anywhere", building modular code with little knowledge of the underlying platform.

With Wasm maturing, how should one look at it compared to other runtime technologies such as Kubernetes, FaaS, micro VMs, eBPF and more? Many organizations tend to focus on the implementation of Wasm closest to their immediate product use-case. But thinking more critically about application architecture and how Wasm fits in to the overall stack will lead to more robust applications and better developer experience than picking the wrong tools for reasons of consistency, adoption, or perceived cost.

In this talk, Sean will describe strategies for building Wasm-first architectures at the enterprise scale. Learn how to take advantage of Wasm portably across the stack by harnessing the power of the component model and areas where it can have the biggest impact. Understand how these different compute modalities can power flexible applications that more easily evolve over their lifecycle by using the right technologies for the use case.
