A session at Google I/O 2012

  • Daniel Clifford

Wednesday 27th June, 2012

11:45am to 12:45pm (PST)

Are you are interested in making JavaScript run blazingly fast in Chrome? This talk takes a look under the hood in V8 to help you identify how to optimize your JavaScript code. We'll show you how to leverage V8's sampling profiler to eliminate performance bottlenecks and optimize JavaScript programs, and we'll expose how V8 uses hidden classes and runtime type feedback to generate efficient JIT code. Attendees will leave the session with solid optimization guidelines for their JavaScript app and a good understanding on how to best use performance tools and JavaScript idioms to maximize the performance of their application with V8.
