Tech talk: Polyglot programming in the context of advanced web engineering

In this talk, I would like to show you an example of polyglot programming in the context of modern web engineering. The goal is to illustrate in practice how Rust is indeed a relevant language and a great technological stack for the implementation of a worker service and showing the ease to link these services with an application built with angular.

I will start with a short overview of the main elements of a modern web browser by showing why it offers an attractive execution environment. I will remind the few SE principles at the core of Angular that support good development practices.

I then propose to launch a discussion on the need to create generators for polyglot environments.

I also propose to show the debugging capabilities currently offered in this context.

I am sure Quentin will come with other demos to launch the discussion.
