WebAssembly: What and What Next?

WebAssembly is a new, portable, low-level code format for the web. All four major browsers have either shipped native support or have it in their release schedules. This talk will give a brief overview of WebAssembly, what it is, why it is, and what it has a chance to become. We’ll cover some implementation details in V8 as well as sketch out design ideas for new features for tackling the challenges that compiling to the web presents, not just for C++, but other languages.
