Have you ever wanted to write your own compiler? … yes? … of course you have! I’ve always wanted to have a go at writing a compiler, and with the recent release of WebAssembly, I had the perfect excuse to have a go.

Client side in-browser hot reloading is one of the most compelling features of client side development. If you're using any client side framework like Angular, Vue or React they all come with integrated CLIs that provide instant live reloading of content as soon as you make a change.

I’m a big believer in fuzzing (if you don’t know what fuzzing is, now is the best time to read my post Going down the rabbit hole with go-fuzz, even if you are not familiar with Go). Unfortunately, it never got popular enough in the context of managed languages such as C# or Java. One of the reasons is that fuzzers are usually security-oriented, and as such they are often used with targets written in C/C++ to find memory-corruption vulnerabilities, which is a class of problems that is completely eliminated in managed programming languages.
The success of go-fuzz proved to me that coverage-guided fuzzing can be surprisingly effective even outside the C/C++ world. Led by its example, I’ve been thinking a lot over the last year about the possible approaches to fuzzing .NET libraries. Today, I can finally present you SharpFuzz.
