Holistic Performance

A session at Velocity 2011

Thursday 16th June, 2011

10:35am to 11:05am (PST)

Working on the development of jQuery one tends to learn about all the performance implications of a particular change to a JavaScript code base (whether it be from an API change or a larger internals rewrite). Performance is an ever-present concern for every single commit and for every release. Performance implications must be well-defended and well-tested. In this talk we’re going to look at all the different performance concerns that the project deals with (processor, memory, network) and the tools that are used to make sure development continues to move smoothly.
