WebAssembly ... what exactly is it? Is it a new virtual machine? A way to create a binary version of JavaScript? A new standard to get everyone to code in C/C++ for the Web? In this session, I'll demystify WebAssembly, demonstrate exactly what it is, and provide insight into how this will affect JavaScript and Web development in the future.

You will learn:

  • How WebAssembly works and see it in action
  • About this new aspect of web development
