Compiling to the Web: Getting Started With asm.js and Emscripten (Presented by Mozilla)


Compiling code to run on the web is pretty easy these days! In this talk we'll explain through concrete examples how you can use the open source Emscripten compiler to convert your C/C++ codebase to asm.js and run it in modern web browsers. We'll focus on common porting-related issues (event loop, rendering, etc.) and how best to handle them. This talk will also explain how asm.js is designed to be reliably compiled to efficient machine code using classic compiler techniques and why asm.js is a competitive approach to safe native-code execution.
