    WebAssembly (abbreviated Wasm) is a binary instruction format for a

    stack-based virtual machine. Wasm is designed as a portable target for compilation of high-level languages like C/C++/Rust, enabling deployment on the web for client and server applications. https://webassembly.org/

    Roadmap • ☑ MVP • ☑ Supported by major browser

    engines • Next Steps • Start work on post-MVP features
  4. 6.

    Features to add after the MVP • Threads • GC

    • ECMAScript module integration • Host bindings • wasm-bindgen • …etc
  5. 7.
  6. 8.

    High-Level Goals • Define a portable, size- and load-time-efficient binary

    format to serve as a compilation target which can be compiled to execute at native speed by taking advantage of common hardware capabilities available on a wide range of platforms, including mobile and IoT. • Design to support non-browser embeddings as well. • https://github.com/ewasm
  7. 9.

    High-Level Goals Design to execute within and integrate well with

    the existing Web platform: • execute in the same semantic universe as JavaScript; allow synchronous calls to and from JavaScript • access browser functionality through the same Web APIs that are accessible to JavaScript
