  1. ▪ 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/Go/C#, enabling deployment on the web for client and server applications.
  2. @yashints ▪ New type of code that can be run

    in modern browsers ▪ Created for better performance ▪ Low level binary format with small footprint ▪ You don’t write WASM, you compile to it
  3. “If you’re a native developer, the Web is just another

    compile target” Dan Callahan @callahad, Developer advocate @Mozilla
