WasmCon: A Gathering of the Best Minds in WebAssembly Technology

In the ever-evolving world of software development, one technology that has been making waves is WebAssembly (Wasm). This binary instruction format for a stack-machine virtual machine is transforming the way developers build and deploy secure applications on the web and beyond. In response to this growing trend, The Linux Foundation has announced the launch of WasmCon, a two-day conference dedicated to fostering collaboration and education among WebAssembly users and developers.

Scheduled for September 6-7, 2023, at the Hyatt Regency in Bellevue, WA, WasmCon is an exciting opportunity for attendees to learn about the latest developments and use cases for this powerful technology. The event will feature keynotes, technical sessions, and hands-on workshops led by industry experts and thought leaders, covering topics relevant to technologists at every level.

Chris Aniszczyk, CTO at Cloud Native Computing Foundation and VP of Developer Relations at The Linux Foundation, expressed his enthusiasm for the event: "WebAssembly is transforming the way we build and deploy applications, and we're excited to bring together the best minds in the WebAssembly community to share knowledge and expertise."

WasmCon is designed for developers, engineers, architects, and business leaders interested in the latest advancements of Wasm. Attendees will have the chance to network with industry experts and learn about the latest tools and technologies that are transforming the way we build and deploy applications.

Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of The Linux Foundation, shared his belief in the bright future of WebAssembly: "We believe that WebAssembly has a bright and evolving future for many types of workloads, and we're thrilled to host this event to bring together the community and advance the technology."

Industry leaders like Bobby Holley, Chair of the Bytecode Alliance, Matt Butcher, CEO at Fermyon Technologies, Michael Yuan, maintainer of the WasmEdge Runtime, and Liam Randall, CEO at Cosmonic, have expressed their support for the event. They are eager to collaborate with every corner of the WebAssembly community to build a secure, efficient, and empowering foundation for the future.

All interested parties are welcome to submit proposals to speak at WasmCon. Proposals can be submitted now through June 25, with topics including introduction to Wasm, performance optimization, security considerations, integration with existing codebases, and more. Early bird registration is available until July 26 for US$399, with special rates for hobbyists, academics, and students.

The Linux Foundation's Registration Scholarship Program offers diversity and need-based registration scholarships for those who may otherwise be unable to attend the event. Additionally, all WasmCon sessions will be live streamed and recorded, making them freely available for anyone to view on The Linux Foundation YouTube channel.

WasmCon is proud to welcome Bytecode Alliance as a Community Partner, with opportunities for event sponsorship still available. For more information, visit the WasmCon website or contact [email protected]
