Book Description

WebAssembly is a brand-new technology that represents a paradigm shift in web development. This book aims to teaches programmers how to leverage this technology to write high- performance applications that run in the browser.

This book will introduces you to the powerful WebAssembly concepts of WebAssembly that willto help you write lean and powerful web applications with native performance.

You will start with the evolution of web programming, the state of things today, and what can be done with the advent and release of WebAssembly. We take a look at the journey from JavaScript to asm.js to WebAssembly. We then move on to analyzinge the anatomy of a WebAssembly module and the relationship between the binary and text formats, along with the corresponding JavaScript API.

Further on, weyou'll implement all the techniques you've learned by to building a high-performance application using C and WebAssembly, and then port an existing game written in C++ to WebAssembly using Emscripten.

By the end of this book, you would will be well-equipped to create high-performance applications and games for the web using WebAssembly.
