About the Course

Many languages work on a compilation story to WebAssembly, but Rust is already ready for primetime. Why?

  • Rust is a stable language and great replacement for C and C++.
  • Due to the reference and borrowing concept, Rust doesn’t need a Garbage Collector and can be used for a production-ready WebAssembly project.
  • The Rust/Wasm team has built some sophisticated tooling for straightforward interoperability between Rust and JavaScript.

This course gives you the tools to compile to WebAssembly with Rust. Over 11 lessons, we’ll set up a project and explore various paths of communication and interoperability between Rust and JavaScript.
