Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Barry Luijbregts, and welcome to my course, Web Assembly: The Big Picture. I am an independent software developer and architect with a passion for the cloud. WebAssembly could revolutionize the web. It is fast and enables you to use languages, like C++ and C# on the web just like JavaScript. If you have anything to do with web development, you should know about WebAssembly. Some of the major topics that we will cover include what WebAssembly is and where it came from and why WebAssembly is such a big deal. By the end of this course, you will know why WebAssembly is important, what it is, and where it came from. You don't have to know anything about web development before you take this course. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about WebAssembly with The Web Assembly: The Big Picture course here, at Pluralsight.
