Join Marco Cantu and myself as we provide an overview of the various web development technologies available to Delphi developers.

Jim McKeeth - If Embarcadero adds WebAssembly as a target for Delphi and C++ Builder, you'd have that ability to create incredible multi-platform, multi-browser client-side applications that target web browsers, including Chrome OS. Chromebook and Linux workstation are the final platforms we need to support with our products and lack of Delphi support for those platforms is preventing me from using Delphi (my favorite development tool) for my company's solution. Chromebooks especially are important for us because they are heavily used in education which makes up a majority of our customer base.
Chromebooks run Android apps, and I've tested Delphi Android apps on Chromebooks (even Intel ones) and it works great. Additionally, you can add 3rd party solutions to easily target Linux desktop and the browser directly. If you don't want to use a 3rd party library you can build it from scratch with Delphi (that is what the tech partners did), it just takes some more effort.
At this point we don't have WebAssembly on the roadmap, but don't know what the future might hold. . . .
