Codepunk 039: WebAssembly

JavaScript have you down? Transpilers giving you trouble? I'm sure by now you've heard of WebAssembly: a safe, open, and high-performance new browser technology that allows you to easily compile some of your favorite languages to a specialized bytecode that can interact with native JavaScript and run right in the browser. Imagine writing front-end code using the same language as your back-end technology stack. In this episode, we talk about WebAssembly, what it can do, and why it's important to the future of the web.
