This time, I have a very technical podcast on WebAssembly and the new kid on the block: the Edge Cloud with Fastly's CTO Tyler McMullen, one of the leading CDNs and edge cloud companies out there.

  • The future of distributed computation: From Serverless to ☁️ Cloudless ☁️
  • WebAssembly as the new industry standard intermediate representation/micro container. And guess what? Your browser most likely already supports it!
  • How a CDN works internally and the challenges of building it
  • How he manages to still be a coding geek in 💰💰💰 10BN company

This podcast was actually recorded shortly before Covid - if you wonder how we could meet up in Berlin ;-)
