The Mysterious World of Code Compression

A session at ModUX 2013

Friday 20th September, 2013

11:00am to 11:55am (AMT)

We all know about code compression (please say you do). We run our code through some tool like Closure Compiler or YUI Compressor and it comes out the other end a garbled pile of junk that works the same as it did uncompressed - or does it?

I'll explore what some of the most popular code compressors do behind the scenes to compress and optimize your code, exploiting quirks in the javascript language and modifying your code to make it run faster.
