Philly Code Camp - Emscripten and C++ on the web

Sign in to queue

Description

I gave this talk at the 2016.1 Philly Code Camp.

Emscripten is an LLVM based project that compiles C and C++ into highly performant JavaScript in the asm.js format. In short: near native speeds, using C and C++, inside of the browser.  Even better, emscripten converts OpenGL, a desktop graphics API, into WebGL, which is the web variant of that API.

I previously wrote a blog post illustrating what Emscripten is, and how it works in relation to some of my favorite game development tools: Unreal Engine 4 and Unity. Therefore, I won't go into great detail about how it works here, but instead wanted to focus on creating your own web project which takes advantage of Emscripten, so that you can take C / C++ code and get it running inside of the browser.
