Gerard Gallant

Gerard Gallant is a Senior Software Developer and Architect with Dovico Software. He learned he had a passion for programming in high school. More recently, when he started doing a jog several times a week to relax, Gerard rediscovered a second high school passion - running. As a huge fan of WebAssembly, he was fortunate to have been given the opportunity to write a book on the subject: WebAssembly in Action (https://www.manning.com/books/webassembly-in-action).

WebAssembly Overview

English session - Beginner

In this session you’ll learn about WebAssembly: what is it, what problems it solves, how it works, and what makes it secure. That last point about security is an important one because that’s one area that gives many people pause when hearing the words ‘native code’ or that C++ can be used. Immediately, we have flash backs of plugins and pointers.
