The philosopher who believes in Web Assembly

The Stack Overflow Podcast

For this episode, we talked with Matt Butcher, CEO at Fermyon Technologies, about distributed computing, the long-term promise of WebAssembly, and the HR mix-up that switched his career from lawn care to computer programming.

Fermyon offers serverless cloud computing. Spin is their developer tool for building WebAssembly microservices and web applications; check it out on GitHub.

Like past podcast guest David Hsu of Retool (and yours truly), Matt earned a degree in the humanities before deciding to prioritize his “side gig” in tech.
