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!

Why #Chinese #science seems so #secretive – and how it may be #about to #change


China's recent scientific achievements – including its embryo gene-editing research and historic moon landing – appear to be surrounded by secrecy. The global scientific community first learned about its experiments modifying the DNA of human embryos through rumours in 2015. And while China's National Space Administrative (CNSA) acknowledged in December 2018 that its spacecraft was preparing to land on the moon, it didn't broadcast or announce the actual touchdown. Instead we learned about it through whispers among journalists and amateur astronomers.
