The Linux Foundation Announces WasmCon Event Focused on WebAssembly Technologies 

SAN FRANCISCO, May 25, 2023 -- The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source, today announced the launch of a new event, WasmCon for WebAssembly developers and users. The event will be held on September 6-7, 2023, at the Hyatt Regency in Bellevue, WA, in the greater Seattle metropolitan area.

WasmCon is a two-day conference aimed at providing attendees with the latest information and trends in WebAssembly (Wasm), including use cases, best practices, deep dives, and emerging technologies. The event will feature keynotes, technical sessions, and hands-on workshops led by industry experts and thought leaders, spanning topics relevant to technologists at every level.

"WebAssembly is transforming the way developers build and deploy secure applications on the web and beyond as use cases expand outside the browser, from edge to server workloads," said Chris Aniszczyk, CTO at Cloud Native Computing Foundation and VP of Developer Relations at The Linux Foundation. "We're excited to bring together the best minds in the WebAssembly community to share knowledge and expertise, focusing on new users and to explore the potential of this powerful technology."

WasmCon is designed for developers, engineers, architects, and business leaders interested in the latest developments and use cases for WebAssembly. Attendees will have the opportunity to network with industry experts and learn about the latest tools and technologies that are transforming the way we build and deploy applications.

"We believe that WebAssembly has a bright and evolving future for many types of workloads, and we're thrilled to host this event to bring together the community and advance the technology," said Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of The Linux Foundation.
