Raw Wasm: Hand-crafted WebAssembly Demos

Over the past few years, I’ve been making small (each is less than 2KiB), hand-written demos in WebAssembly. I’ve also written a few blog posts about the largest (see raw wasm: making a maze race, part 1 and part 2). In this talk, I’ll give an overview about the project, including how I made the demos, some of the fun tricks I used to keep file sizes small, and even how it can be useful!
