Summary
Alon Zakai discusses writing and deploying web applications that use both handwritten JavaScript and another language like C++ that has been compiled into JavaScript, presenting the advantages of that approach, open source tools like Emscripten and Embind that enable it, asm.js optimizations which let it run at near-native speeds, and several real-world examples of such projects.
