JavaScript Timers, Power Consumption, and Performance

A session at Velocity 2012

Wednesday 27th June, 2012

2:30pm to 3:10pm (PST)

We use JavaScript timers via setTimeout() all the time, but few really understand how they work and their performance implications. As animations and complex processes become more common, a good understanding of how timers work, as well as the new alternatives, is key to good front-end performance.
