How We Learnt To Stop Worrying And Love The Browser

A session at O'Reilly Fluent Conference 2012

Thursday 31st May, 2012

11:50am to 12:30pm (PST)

As we rebuilt twitter.com's front end architecture we got an opportunity to draw from our combined years of JavaScript triumphs and disasters to develop a brand new front-end infrastructure. The collection of patterns that we've made use of are based around simple principles: Don't fight the browser, don't fight JavaScript and always use the right tool for the job.
