re: Why the heck is everyone talking about WebAssembly? VIEW POST


Actually pretty no one is talking about WebAssembly, compared to Blockchain or IoT is still an obscure technology.

Like PWA they need a wide adoption first, and to solve a business need.



It's possible that there is a decent amount of "talk" in terms of podcasts, conference talks, etc. But Google trends probably is more reflective of what problems people are solving on a day-to-day basis. I doubt Webassembly is ever going to be the actual concern of that many developers, even if it gains popularity. But idk.

I think blockchain is a huge outlier in its capacity to gain mainstream traction. Even when Webassembly is well-established, I doubt the news will report on it.
