If you’ve conquered optimizing images on your site, then the next frontier is optimizing code. The amount of first- and third-party JavaScript in an application has tripled over the last three years. Single-page apps and the use of JavaScript frameworks is increasing. In this session, we will focus on new techniques for optimizing Javascript and HTML, including a unique machine learning technology that makes JavaScript code load faster with no changes to the underlying code.

This session will cover:

  • Responsive and single page app web design trends
  • Special performance considerations for third-party JavaScript
  • Increased usage and dependency on first- and third-party JavaScript and the associated performance bottlenecks
  • How much JavaScript code is actually used and deployed
  • Traditional approaches to improving JavaScript performance
  • New approaches to improving first and third party JavaScript performance
  • How to measure and benchmark JavaScript performance

This session is sponsored by Instart Logic
