Solo.io, Google and Istio have teamed up to support WebAssembly in Envoy Proxy and Istio to bring the dynamic extensibility of WebAssembly to Envoy with unmatched agility, reliability and security.
What is WebAssembly?
WebAssembly (Wasm) is a fast, efficient, portable binary instruction format, providing an embeddable and safe execution environment for platform extensions. Wasm extensions, which can be written in multiple languages and executed at a near-native speed, became a popular way to extend web based applications.
Speakers from Solo.io and Google will cover the community feedback and collaboration that led to support for WebAssembly and the joint effort to iterate on WebAssemblyHub to ensure the best developer experience in on-boarding, developing, deploying, managing and sharing WebAssembly extensions.
