Podcast: Thinking Elixir 162: Elixir to WebAssembly with Orb

Episode 162 of Thinking Elixir. WebAssembly is an interesting technology that feels completely separate from Elixir. Patrick Smith created an Elixir project called Orb, an Elixir DSL for WebAssembly. He also shows how a WebAssembly component can play a meaningful role in a LiveView page! We talk more about what WebAssembly is, the promise for the technology, how it can improve UX, and where Patrick sees real practical applications for Elixir developers.
