Pyodide: The scientific Python stack compiled to WebAssembly
2019-07-24, 11:40–11:50, Room 349

Pyodide is a project from Mozilla to build a performant scientific Python stack running entirely in the web browser using WebAssembly.

Unlike the traditional data science interaction model where the web browser only acts as a front end to computation happening on a remote server, Pyodide allows the computation to happen right within the user's web browser. This makes interactivity more performant, and allows easier sharing of notebooks without using potentially costly or privacy-violating cloud services.

I hope to present this at JuliaCon as a success story in the hopes that a similar tool can be built for Julia.
