WebAssembly at eBay: a real-world use case  ↦

An interesting example of porting a native/mobile custom library to the web using webassembly. Didn’t work as expected out of the box, so they ported another custom library and raced them. Then added a JavaScript implementation for a trifecta.

Love that they shared the actual customer-facing results too. As authors Pranav Jha and Senthil Padmanabhan say:

Technology evolves at a very rapid pace. Every day we hear new things getting launched. But only a few make a difference to customers, and WebAssembly is one of them.
