Part 1. First steps


This part of the book will introduce you to WebAssembly and the process of creating a WebAssembly module.

In chapter 1, you’ll learn what WebAssembly is, the problems it solves, what makes it secure, and which programming languages you can use with it.

In chapter 2, I’ll introduce the internal structure of a WebAssembly module, so you can see what each section’s purpose is.

Then, in chapter 3, you’ll learn about the different output options available with the Emscripten toolkit by creating your first WebAssembly modules. I’ll also introduce you to the WebAssembly JavaScript API.
