re: I think to learn C for wasm VIEW POST


I agree wasm is super interesting, especially with Mozilla working on WASI

Are you picking C because you already know it? Or are you just looking for some way to write wasm?

If itโ€™s the second one I strongly recommend looking at Rust. Itโ€™s a more modern systems programming language created by Mozilla with some higher level abstractions and lots of safety, and it is being developed with wasm in mind.

Hereโ€™s how to get started with Rust and wasm


Rust โ€“ nice language as far as I know.

I choose C because this is a more powerful language.


Iโ€™m curious what about C makes it more powerful. I donโ€™t have as much experience with C as Rust, but from what I understand Rust can do everything C can, just with more compile-time checks.
