I like that there is some small optional implied try-yourself content that allows you some basic hands on experience.

Very simple introduction that didn't produce test avoidance anxiety due to tricky questions and inability to understand a correct answer in some cases. It was a simple, pleasant and informative experience, good fundament for next, more advanced courses in this subject.

The practical examples of wasm projects in different languages really gave me a good grasp of what it could look like in a real application.
