ES Modules & Import Maps: Back to the Future
There was a time when creating a web page meant creating an html file, yet nowadays it seems impossible to build any frontend without the bottomless pit of node_modules, yielding a finely chewed yet hefty bundle.xyz.js.

Crc 32 Checksum in Wasm and Raw Js Tutorial and Benchmark
In this tutorial we'll build a cyclic redundancy check (CRC) hashing function. More specifically, its 32 bit variant called "CRC-32".
