WebAssembly (And the Death of JavaScript?)



Colin Eberhardt looks at what's wrong with the way people are using JavaScript today and why they need WebAssembly. He gives a tour of the WebAssembly instruction set, memory and security model, before moving on to the practical aspects of using it with Rust, C++ and JS. He looks at what the future might hold for this technology, and asks the question - “Is WebAssembly going to kill JavaScript?”


Colin Eberhardt is the Technology Director at Scott Logic, a UK-based software consultancy where they create complex application for their financial services clients. He is an avid technology enthusiast, spending his evenings contributing to open source projects, writing blog posts and learning as much as he can.
