Why you should consider WebAssembly in your next Frontend Project | Håkan Silfvernagel

Discover why WebAssembly, a new browser standard, should be considered for your next frontend project. It offers improved performance, security, and versatility for building high-performance web applications.

Key takeaways
  • WebAssembly is a new browser standard that allows you to run code written in languages like C, C++, and Rust in the browser.
  • It is a binary format that is compiled down from a higher-level language, making it more efficient than JavaScript.
  • WebAssembly is supported by all major browsers and has a security sandbox that prevents it from accessing files or system functionalities.
  • It can be used to create high-performance applications, such as games, simulations, and audio/video processing.
  • WebAssembly can also be used to create serverless applications that run on the cloud.
  • There are a number of frameworks that can be used to develop WebAssembly applications, such as Blazor, AssemblyScript, and MScript.
  • WebAssembly is still a relatively new technology, but it has the potential to revolutionize the way we develop web applications.
