Wasm on Clojure

Submitted by Emmanuel Antony (@emmanuelantony2000) on Jan 19, 2020

🌔 Submission Type: Lightning (10 minutes) Status: Confirmed & scheduled


Supercharging existing Clojure applications using Wasm. WebAssembly (or Wasm) is a portable binary code format for executable programs. High level languages (C/C++/Rust) can compile down to Wasm as a portable target. Wasm is about 20% slower than native code execution.


What is Wasm?
Where can you run Wasm?
How to run Wasm on top of JVM?
Calling Wasm code from Clojure.
Can this be a bridge between Clojure and Rust?

Speaker bio

I am a Rust developer, currently pursuing my Bachelor’s degree. I like to tinker with stuff and know how things work internally. Stuff are those engineering marvels that we take for granted these days.
