About the Technology
Write high-performance browser-based applications without relying only on jаvascript! By compiling to the WebAssembly binary format, your C, C++, or Rust code runs at near-native speed in the browser. WebAssembly delivers greater speed, opportunities to reuse existing code, and access to newer and faster libraries. Plus, you can easily interact with jаvascript when you need to.
About the Book
WebAssembly in Action teaches you how to write and run high-performance browser-based applications using C++ and other languages supported by WebAssembly. In it, you'll learn to create native WebAssembly modules, interact with jаvascript components, and maximize performance with web workers and pthreads. And you'll love how the clearly organized sections make it a breeze to find the important details about every function, feature, and technique.
