What is WebAssembly? And why do I want to use it?

Writing code which runs in a web-browser usually means learning a load of JavaScript, which seems totally alien to those of us from Scientific Computing backgrounds.

But, help is at hand from “emscripten” which allows you to compile C or C++ to WebAssembly, which will run in most modern browsers.

I will describe some of my adventures into this unfamiliar world, and illustrate, as usual, with exciting live demos.
