High Performance JavaScript

For much of its existence, JavaScript has been slow. No one complained until developers created complex web applications with thousands of lines of JavaScript code. Although newer JavaScript engines have improved the situation, there’s still a lot to understand about what makes JavaScript slow and what you can do to speed up your code.

Nicholas C. Zakas worked at Yahoo! for almost five years, building and defining front-end strategy for some of Yahoo's largest sites. Nicholas is also the author of several books, including High Performance JavaScript, Professional JavaScript for Web Developers, and Professional Ajax. More about Nicholas: NCZOnline, @slicknet.

    Good presenter; not sure if the talk was appropriate for the group, who seemed to know a lot of the material already, but I'm sure it helped some people there. Nicholas Zakas did a good job presenting the material he had. Enjoyed the beers afterwards.
