About Speaker
I have 19 years’ experience of software development in various positions such as developer, tester, architect, project manager, scrum master, practice manager and team lead. I currently work as a consultant at Miles. Before becoming a consultant I have previously worked as a researcher within the field of human computer interaction in the process industry with a focus on process automation and robotics. I have a broad educational background with a master’s degree in Electrical Engineering, a master’s degree in Behavioral Science and I am currently finishing a master’s degree in Emotion Psychology. During my psychology studies I came across the field of affective computing which combines psychology with computer science. Taking into account the focus on artificial intelligence and machine learning of today I believe it is important to take the human factor into account and try to make our systems adapt to the way we function as humans. I am also part of the local chapter of the Norwegian .NET User Group Oslo (NNUG).

Why you should consider Web Assembly in your next frontend project.

Talk abstract
During the last decades more functionality has been pushed into the client by using the latest JavaScript framework. But what if we could be using native code in the browser in order to run computations faster and reuse backend code in the frontend? Web Assembly can help you achieving this.

Talk description
During the last decades a growing trend has been to put more and more functionality into the client by using the latest and greatest JavaScript framework. But what if we could be using native code in the browser in order to run computations faster and potentially reuse code from the backend in the frontend. Enter Web Assembly. Web assembly is a new web standard which enables you to run native code as part of your current JavaScript framework. This talk will give you a thorough understanding of what web assembly is and how you can use it in your project. We will cover a practical example writing our web assembly using Rust. We will go through everything from writing your web assembly code to publish it as a npm package and finally use it in an existing web application.
