Use Emscripten to Compile Code to JS

I was invited as a speaker at Free and Open Source Software Meet 2013, organized by National Institute of Technology, Calicut. FOSS Meet is an annual event at NIT Calicut that brings together the Free and Open Source Community from around the country.

I delivered a talk on  ‘Emscripten’ a compiler developed by Mozilla. Emscripten is an open source Low Level Virtual Machine to JavaScript compiler used for deploying applications on web. Emscripten ports any application written in high level languages such as C/C++ to JavaScript and thereby makes it easier to deploy on the web.

During the talk, I gave an introduction to Emscripten, its working, an overview of the compilation process and also showed demos of applications that are ported to web using Emscripten. The audience who attended the session has never heard of emscripten before. Hence, my talk gave them an introduction to the new compiler. 🙂
