asm.js is a subset of JavaScript meant to execute code faster, especially for JavaScript converted from C or C++, but can also execute on browsers. This was one of the main topics covered by Manuel Lemos, Michael Kimsal and Arturs Sosins in the episode 28 of the Lately in JavaScript podcast. They also talked about making languages execute faster with alternative memory allocation methods, using IndexedDB and other file storage APIs, better asynchronous programming with Async.js, and the comparison between languages with Lord of the Rings characters. Listen to the podcast now, or watch the podcast video or read the transcript to learn more about these and other interesting JavaScript related topics.
