Experimenting with .NET 7, WASM, and WASI on Docker

published on 2022/11/01

A couple of weeks ago my friend Julien Chable asked me about WASM/WASI and Wasmtime. As he is a .NET developer, I explained that Wasmtime is similar to the .NET CLR, with some key differences. It runs in a sandbox environment therefore secure, starts in a few milliseconds therefore faster than containers. It allows you to write code with many languages and deploy this code on many platforms without recompiling and above all to write modules in one language and use them from another.
