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?”
