About this event

In this live stream we will introduce you to Spin and WebAssembly, as the future for serverless applications.

WebAssembly (abbreviated Wasm) is a binary instruction format for a stack-based virtual machine. Wasm is designed as a portable compilation target for programming languages, enabling deployment on the web for client and server applications. With it’s first release in 2017, WebAssembly was initially designed to enable near-native code execution speed in the web browser, and has been considered valuable outside of such, in more generalized context, which is where WASI (WebAssembly System Interface) has been devloped.

Spin ( is an open source framework for building and running fast, secure, and composable cloud microservices with WebAssembly. Spin applications runs anywhere, on your local workstation, server, Kubernetes, and clouds.
