When @WalmartLabs built Electrode, the open source React/Node.js application platform that powers Walmart.com, performance was one of the primary concerns. React has a well-deserved reputation for speed, but getting the best performance took careful planning and tuning. Alexander Grigoryan explains how @WalmartLabs used techniques like above-the-fold rendering and SSR caching to improve React performance.
Alexander Grigoryan leads the Application Platform team at @WalmartLabs and is responsible for the development of Electrode, an open source project that made it possible for Walmart.com to transition from Backbone/Java to React/Node.js in under a year. His focus is on reusability, performance, and security while leveraging the latest technologies and best software engineering practices. Previously, Alex led the team in charge of building the checkout experience at PayPal.
