WebAssembly is a rapidly growing technology that provides great opportunities for Swift developers. This talk will introduce Swift developers to WebAssembly, and demonstrate how they can run Swift in the browser, call JavaScript from Swift to access the DOM, add Swift modules to web apps, and so much more. A live demo will show how a single Swift codebase can power not just an iOS app, but also a web app, and a back-end.
