Snappy Means Happy: Performance in Ember Apps

A session at EmberConf 2014

Wednesday 26th March, 2014

4:45pm to 5:15pm (PST)

Ember is fast. Ember Core is working hard to make Ember even faster. So why does your app drag?

The performance of a single-page app is impacted by the performance characteristics of its foundational parts: Persistence, the DOM, and JavaScript. Ember provides tools to manage these cornerstones, but with the tradeoff of introducing its own characteristics.

In this talk, we will use the source of real, shipped Ember apps (and of Ember itself) to diagnose, understand, and improve slow interactions. The Chrome developer tools and Ember instrumentation will help us understand slow code paths and identify opportunities for improvement. Along the way, we will learn how parts of Ember work at the macro and micro level and learn how the framework helps us manage performance challenges in a browser environment.
