Re: Re: [webperf] JS and Ruby on Rails developers needed at Toura!

Absolutely, I forgot! :)

Well, on the rails side: the usual performance related things that you'd do with a consumer-facing rails app that has had little/no performance stuff done to it (aside from SQL optimization). It's not a critical problem, but one that should be addressed, and I think there's a lot of low-hanging fruit available for the seasoned, experienced performance-oriented developer.

The JS side is much more interesting, performance-wise. It's a "rich web app" (think: gmail or flickr in complexity) embedded on a mobile device, and so CPU/memory are highly constrained. The app has a lot of (well structured, tested) JS code but performance needs improved, and memory usage reduced. How? That's where [you] come in! It's a different set of problems than, say, reducing HTTP requests & network latency, but is interesting nonetheless. :)
