Presentation Abstract: As engineers, we need to make things go fast. We'll review and expand your knowledge of JavaScript and jQuery techniques focusing on increasing speed, decreasing memory usage and DRYing up your code. We will specifically cover DOM caching, better event handling (delegation vs. direct binding), and using loops to avoid repetition.

Bio: Like you, Evan is helping startups solve their problems. He has sped up a handful of startup's apps, teaching them how to jQuery, and write cromulent JavaScripts.
