2022 saw WebAssembly (often shortened to Wasm) gain huge momentum. Already heralded as the biggest change to web technologies since the introduction of JavaScript, new standards from the Bytecode Alliance encouraged a host of major companies like Microsoft and Docker to announce new support for Wasm as a server-side technology. It was adopted as an embedded technology in databases, data streaming technologies, network proxies, even crypto-currencies, and the one of the biggest Wasm users, Figma, was acquired for $20 billion dollars by Adobe.

In this session I’ll highlight 5 developments we’ll see in 2023 that will cement Wasm as one of the most important developments we’ve seen in the IT industry for a decade. I’ll discuss how these trends effect the OpenEdge community, how we can take advantage of them, and what the future of OpenEdge might look like as these trends develop.
