The Art of WebAssembly (No Starch Press)
Monday, 14 June 2021

This book is designed to give web developers a solid understanding of how it works, when to use it (and when not to), and how to develop and deploy WebAssembly apps. Rick Battagline shows how to optimize and compile low-level code, debug and evaluate WebAssembly, and represent WebAssembly in the human-readable WebAssembly Text (WAT) format. Later chapters show how to build a browser-based collision detection program, work with browser rendering technologies to create graphics and animations, and how WebAssembly interacts with other web languages.
