I managed to get a 20-person room on the second day of tutorials (Thursday) at PyCon US 2023 for a WebAssembly summit. Because of the limited space, the first order of business is figuring out who is going to attend. If you are interested in attending, please reply here with why you would like to attend (e.g. “I work on Pyodide”, “my company uses WASI and wants to add Python support”, etc.). I will then play the bad guy and figure out if I have to pare the list down to 20 people to fit the room (or if I’m lucky and less than 20 people want to even attend). I unfortunately do not expect to be streaming this meeting.
Please reply by March 1 with your interest in attending!
I know the following people are already interested as they asked about the summit and helped spark this planning (I’ll let them give their own reasons for wanting to attend):
I’m also assuming @hoodmane and @rth are interested from Pyodide, but I will let them speak for themselves (and if they are attending PyCon US this year). I don’t know if @pmp-p will be attending PyCon US.
I obviously will be attending. I’ll put myself down as wanting to attend both as the core developer on the hook for keeping WebAssembly working on CPython as well as VS Code being interested in Python in WASI.
Sadly it’s hard for me to move far/long time from home so no PyCon US for me . But i’ll make it to PyCon FR 2023 at Bordeaux on 18/02 to present 1 hour of pratical application and packaging of stock cpython-wasm ( terminal / pygame / IoT and Harfang3D ). In French, free entry, no fee but still need registering À propos − PyConFr 2023
My company InfinyOn is actively working on support running Python code in WebAssembly for our open source project Fluvio and interersted in colloberating with others in advancing Python & WebAssembly integration.
Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend, as I have decided not to travel to PyCon US this year. Maybe @hoodmane or @ryanking13 would be able to attend from the Pyodide project. I’ll be at EuroPython in July, in Prague (Czech Republic) if anyone wants to talk about WebAssembly there.
Just confirming my attendance at the web assembly summit at PyCon US. Many thanks to Brett for driving this forward.
Euro based folk… @rth@antocuni et al… I’m helping to organise EuroPython, so would welcome suggestions for how we can help make Python / web assembly a “thing” in Prague. It could be something as simple as a sprint or open space, up to something akin to a “summit” or track of talks.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out with ideas and I’ll pass these on and champion them in the EuroPython context.
I’d add that, timezones allowing, we have some way for @dpgeorge and/or Jim Mussared (co-maintainer) to join us via video link should they want to (both in Australian timezones).
Damien is going to be focusing on MicroPython in a web assembly context in the not-too-distant future, and they’d both likely find some of our discussions fruitful, stimulating and an opportunity for gathering wider context about Python in the web assembly eco-system.
Of course, they might not want/be able to participate, but it’d be good to give them the opportunity.
If you would like to have that happen then I leave it to you to make it happen . I have never seen such a setup work successfully and I don’t have the time (or patience) to try and make it work. But if you can somehow figure out how to make livestreaming the event work then please do so!
Hehehe… I totally understand and agree with your point.
To be honest I was thinking of just having an hour in the day where Damien/Jim could (should they wish) join us for chat/discussions, so we bump chats that relate to MicroPython to such a time.
As for the setup… I’d invite them to a Zoom call, point my laptop in the right direction and hope conference wifi doesn’t go into meltdown. No point over thinking this and it’s definitely a “best effort” thing.
I’ll ping Damien and Jim - if they’re not interested we’re all good. If they are, we can figure out something simple.
