A talk from PyCon India by David Beazley, who writes a very basic stack machine and evolves it into a wasm interpreter, which then runs a simple arcade game written in rust.

I enjoy David Beazley’s talks, they’re usually quite intense but in a way that’s very fun. I know he now teaches a python course based on SICP, and you can see shades of SICP-influenced pedagogy in this talk.
