Show HN: I wrote a book about WebAssembly


Hey HN!

I've been working on a book about WebAssembly over the last few months, and it's finally available at http://levelupwasm.com!

Why a book on WebAssembly you ask? Well... WebAssembly is awesome (obviously ) but it's certainly not the easiest thing to learn. So I wrote this book as a practical intro to using WebAssembly in your web apps.

I would appreciate any feedback!
