Some thoughts and reflection on my first day using Wasm components for something more involved than hello world. 

I’ve been evangelizing WebAssembly for what feels like the last 100 years (it’s only been 4!). I’ve introduced enough people and teams to Wasm to have noticed a common journey to adoption that starts with what might feel like stages of grief. As we peel away the layers of shiny demos and things that only work under a blue moon at the stroke of midnight in a thunderstorm, reality sets in that the core Wasm standard is just, as my colleague Bailey Hayes says, “three ints in a trenchcoat.”
