As a backend developer, why should you be interested in a WebAssembly (Wasm)? Because Wasm is not only for web developers, it's quickly becoming a serious player as a server-side technology.
Wasm is a binary instruction format for a stack-based virtual machine. And Wasm execution environments can include not only browsers but minimal shells, mobiles, desktops and IoT devices.
In this talk we will take a look at the WASM state in 2020, from a server-side point of view. Some of the use-cases we will see include a FaaS platform, a server-side platform to compute untrusted code.
