Multiplatform C++ on The Web with Emscripten


Emscripten is a compiler of LLVM bitcode into JavaScript. With Emscripten, programs written in C++ can run straight from your web browser, and no plug-ins are required. In this lecture, Chad Austin will describe why IMVU has chosen Emscripten as part of its multi-platform engine strategy. He will explain how Emscripten works, its performance, how to integrate your code with web APIs, and of course, the downsides and challenges to using Emscripten.
