The Web is omnipresent nowadays and meets most of the needs of our applications. For almost 10 years, leading browsers have been working hard to push the boundaries and performance of our connected apps. This is also the main reason why WebAssembly, the new binary standard initially implemented by Safari, Chrome, Firefox and Edge, appeared. It allows the execution, in the browser, of your favourite programming languages ​​at almost native speed.
During this session, we browse the current means implemented by browsers to optimise the execution of JavaScript code. We will outline the limitations of current solutions, the benefits provided by the WebAssembly and review its performance. Enjoy the future of the Web, now!

One day people will wake up and realize that Augmented Reality is here. Advertisers are keen on AR because it can create higher levels of engagement than traditional ads. The power of gamification and the power of people experimenting with AR technology helps them to make better decisions as consumers. You can find an ad in your news feed, open the camera, and preview a product in the "Real" world.

In 1996 I read about György Ligeti’s mechanical music (notably Poème Symphonique) and started to explore the possibility of precisely timed music. Knowing that computers now allowed more programmatic control over sound than they did in 1962, when Ligeti's wrote his piece, I set about writing algorithms to generate MIDI files which ultimately became Symphony 1 in C# minor.
