The Linux Foundation has launched a free, online training course, called WebAssembly Actors: From Cloud to Edge (LFD134x). The course explores the portability, efficiency, and security of WebAssembly (Wasm) modules and how to leverage a number of open source frameworks to create distributed and seamlessly connected actors that can be deployed in a browser, on a laptop, in the cloud, on a Raspberry Pi, or practically anywhere.
This course is designed for developers who have built or are building microservices and have experienced a high degree of friction in cloud native application development.
Developers looking to embrace the simplicity of Functions as a Service (FaaS) without the overhead of cloud providers or sacrificing the ability to experiment and test locally and in any other environment will gain significant value from this course.
Kevin Hoffman, the author of “Programming WebAssembly with Rust”, “Cloud Native Go”, and over a dozen books on various aspects of the .NET Framework, created this course.
The course is free to audit on edX.org for seven weeks, or a verified certification of completion is available for a fee, which includes a full year of course access.
