Howdy folks 🤠 Sharing a blog post I published last week about the wonderful world of Wasm! As Wasm gains momentum across a broad spectrum of use cases (both client and server side), providing a first class Wasm devX will become an increasingly important objective for Platform Teams. The blog covers 1) a landscape of Wasm dev tools (e.g., build tools, runtimes, app platforms, edge faas providers), 2) emerging use cases, 3) key steps needed to unlock broader industry adoption of Wasm (e.g. advancement of standards) and more!! Curious if anyone is experimenting with Wasm today and/or already running in prod?

WASM is a proven practice in large-scale systems. We used WASM to replace nignix since it has a good sandbox safey, developer-friendly experiences, and good community.
For public reference, Cloudflare blog: https://blog.cloudflare.com/announcing-wasi-on-workers/ as for the cloud CDN industry.
