SOIL Seminar: Julia Language on WebAssembly: Our Wish List and Experience So Far
From Ross Tate
Speaker: Jeff Bezanson—Julia Computing
Summary: Last year a proof-of-concept WASM port of the Julia run-time was developed, leading to a fairly functional (though not performant) Julia prompt in the browser. Here I will present our experience with the system and explain some of the challenges involved in bringing up a full-scale implementation, including GC, object model, coroutines, threads, and JIT compilation.
