Ben Titzer joins to talk about the history and future of WebAssembly, the design and implementation of V8's TurboFan optimizing compiler, and the Virgil programming language. We also discuss bringing high-level language features to constrained hardware, the V8 team's response to the Spectre and Meltdown side-channel attacks, and how to design high performance virtual machines.
