An Introduction to WebAssembly
About

Want to write a web application? Better get familiar with JavaScript! While there have been various attempts to dethrone it, they have typically involved treating JavaScript as an assembly-language analog that you transpile your code to. But what if there were an actual byte-code language you could compile your non-JavaScript code to instead? That's WebAssembly!

I'm going to explain how WebAssembly works and how to use it. And, I'll show how to build your own modules with Rust and WebAssembly Text Format in a live coding session. So grab a modern browser and let's get started!
