jQuery & Performance Script Loading

A session at jQuery Summit

Wednesday 17th November, 2010

3:00pm to 4:00pm

Kyle Simpson, creator of LABjs, and James Burke, creator of RequireJS, will team up to cover asynchronous script loading and dependency management in-depth, hoping to dispel misconceptions and myths about this complicated topic, providing you with practical knowledge and techniques. We'll explain the different features of LABjs and RequireJS, respectively, and help compare and contrast their strengths and weaknesses for various use cases.

From simple client-side loading of jQuery and plugins to a complete build-time dependency management solution on your server, this talk will give you rock-solid script loading approaches you can implement immediately in your own jQuery projects.
