Big Web App? Compile It!

Saturday 16th February, 2013

10:00am to 10:45am (CET)

Over the last few years compiling code to JavaScript has become mainstream, with major websites utilizing significant amounts of compiled code. Despite this proven success, the approach is often misunderstood and its potential underestimated. We will discuss why such misconceptions persist while discussing the history of the compilation approach as well as its advantages and disadvantages, during which several demos of compiled code will be shown.
