We are Leaning Technologies
We make WebAssembly solutions to help businesses transitioning from native to modern Web Applications. Since 2012, our technologies have given organisations an alternative to rewriting existing code to HTML5, or to discontinuing mission-critical internal applications.

History & Growth
2012 – Leaning Technologies founded by Alessandro, Massimo and Stefano
2014 – We released the first iteration of Cheerp, our open-source, enterprise-grade C/C++ compiler for HTML5 web applications.
2016 – Leaning Technologies’ first contribution to browser source code (Firefox)
2018 – Our second product CheerpJ is released, enabling Java to HTML5 compilation.
2020 – CheerpX For Flash is announced, the only HTML5 Flash emulator allowing unmodified Flash content to run seamlessly on modern browsers.
2021 – Leaning Technologies champions its’ first contribution to the WebAssembly Standard.
2022 – We announced WebVM, a full Linux-based virtual machine running in the browser, powered by WebAssembly and the CheerpX virtualisation engine.
The performance and size of the converted code have been always quite impressive, but in the last year, Cheerp has further dramatically improved the runtime speed, and drastically reduced the compiled size, allowing us to save on bandwidth and resources, as well as to extend our customer base. As a matter of fact, the performance is so good that […] we moved to a web-only application!
