Oh the Memories! - An Introduction to Browser Memory Leak Testing

A session at Modern Web Conference

Thursday 7th August, 2014

2:00pm to 2:50pm

Conferences like Modern Web Conf are a wonderful time filled with many lasting memories. Just like how our brains can be overwhelmed by all of the great experiences at a conference, our web applications can also suffer from trying to remember too many things. Browser memory leaks are an often overlooked, yet important, issue in modern web development that can be overcome with the right techniques.
In this session, we will take an introductory look at the tools and approaches that you can use to identify and investigate browser memory leaks. We will look at common scenarios that cause this problem, as well as patterns to use in your code to avoid leaks. Additionally, we will explore the various options for debugging and profiling leaks across different browsers and platforms. You'll leave this session with some new memories that will help you start tackling leaks in your web apps today!
