WebAssembly on the server side comes with many usecases and in this meetup we will try to explore WebAssembly and see its benefits with cloud native. We will also do a Hands-on Workshop.

Talk 1 - Building a Like Button with Spin and Wasm


In this talk, we walk through the process of building an embeddable like button using Spin, JavaScript/TypeScript, a Wasm file server, and key/value storage. In just a few dozen lines of code we’ll create a REST API and a UI component.


Matt Butcher & Radu Matei

Talk 2 - Porting “Good First Issue” to Spin


The Good First Issue bot is a GitHub app that posts about issues on Twitter. We ported this Go codebase from its original version to a Fermyon Spin app. In this talk, we cover what the project does (and how), then talk about what we learned while porting it. We end with a demo.

Talk 3 - Building Apps with Spin and OpenAI


If there are two trendy technologies right now, they are WebAssembly and AI. In this combo workshop and lecture, we introduce WebAssembly and the Spin tool for building Wasm apps. Then we walk step-by-step through the process of building an app that uses OpenAI and Spin together.

Talk 4 - CloudNative Webassembly


In this talk, the speaker will introduce WebAssembly and its intersection in the cloud-native ecosystem. They will show how to create Webassembly apps with the existing toolchain that they are familiar with of Docker and Kubernetes.
