## "Performance monitoring in the project" by Anton Nemtsev

Everybody loves to talk about performance and how important it is. But nobody knows how their site is performing and how it's changing with time. Let's find out what we should measure, how we should do it, how to log it and what standards may help us.

## "I can write my WebScript with no alpha chars" by Rael Sasiak-Rushby

There's a lot of quirky things you can do in JavaScript, some of them are awesome, some are a bit weird and some straddle the line between the two.

This talk goes into some of the weird things possible in JavaScript, why they're possible and by the end you'll learn that you too can write anything in JavaScript without any alpha characters.

## "Making Sense of Symbols, Iterables, Iterators and Generators" by Dade (https://twitter.com/@dadepo)

Symbols? Generator functions? Iterables? Iterators? If all these sound foreign to you, then this talk will help make things clearer.

It will be an explorative look at some of the new features that got introduced into JavaScript as part of ES6 and how they can be used together to implement the iteration protocols. Which is part of the language that allows us to create custom data structures that can be used with the ""for of"" syntax, spread syntax, destructuring assignment etc.
