Fermyon @ DeveloperWeek '23

The Fermyon team is headed out west to Oakland, CA next week for the in-person Developer Week event to share the latest in WebAssembly + cloud native technologies. Come learn about how with WebAssembly, our open source project Spin, and Fermyon Cloud, you can get from blinking cursor to deployed application in 66 seconds.

We’ll be around all week — check out the schedule below for details:

[Hybrid] Wasm NA Meet-Up

Time: Wed Feb 15, 05:00 - 07:00 PM PT

Location: Convex’s De Haro Office (444 De Haro St Suite 218 · San Francisco, CA) & Online

Join us for a pre-conference meet-up with the Wasm NA group in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco. Convex will be hosting at their office and we’ll be sponsoring light bites and drinks. Matt Butcher will be presenting on “Writing Serverless Functions with Spin”. Full details are on the meet-up page.

To tune into the meet-up remotely, RSVP for the virtual event and tune in ~05:30 PM PT.

OPEN Talk Presentation @ DeveloperWeek

Time: Thur Feb 16, 09:00 - 09:25 AM PT

Location: Oakland Convention Center, OPEN Expo Innovation Stage

If you miss Matt Butcher at the Wednesday evening meet-up, catch him bright and early on Thursday at the first OPEN Talk session taking place at the OPEN Expo Innovation Stage – OPEN TALK: WebAssembly is the Future of Serverless


As cloud developers, we are accustomed to working with virtual machines and containers. But there is an exciting new wave of cloud computing. WebAssembly, originally written for the browser, has the performance characteristics ideal for the next generation of serverless. And with the open source Spin project, you can build your first WebAssembly serverless function in two minutes.

For the last several years, two technologies have claimed the cloud compute space: Virtual machines (VMs) and containers. But there is a third class of cloud compute that has the ideal characteristics for underpinning serverless functions. And this technology is WebAssembly.

WebAssembly may have begun life in the browser, but like many promising technologies, it is useful well beyond. WebAssembly’s unique execution model and performance profile make it an excellent third wave of cloud computing. With lean memory and CPU usage, startup times under one millisecond, and a strong sandboxing model, WebAssembly is a great fit for the cloud.

The open source Spin project enables cloud native developers to go from a blinking cursor to a deployed serverless function in less than two minutes. We’ll look at the performance characteristics of this kind of serverless, and conclude with an exploration of what this means for the future of cloud computing.


  • WebAssembly is the next wave of cloud computing, alongside VMs and containers
  • Serverless functions illustrate the ideal usage pattern for WebAssembly
  • A developer can be up and running in as little as two minutes

If you can’t make the live presentation, you can catch it during the [Virtual] event the following week on Wednesday February 22 @ 09:00 AM PT.
