state of js implementations, 2014 edition

9 December 2014 10:29 AM (javascript | v8 | jsc | spidermonkey | igalia | webengineshackfest)

I gave a short talk about the state of JavaScript implementations this year at the Web Engines Hackfest.


29 minutes, vorbis or mp3; slides (PDF)

The talk goes over a bit of the history of JS implementations, with a focus on performance and architecture. It then moves on to talk about what happened in 2014 and some ideas about where 2015 might be going. Have a look if that's a thing you are in to. Thanks to Adobe, Collabora, and Igalia for sponsoring the event.

    Did you see the embeddable JS interpreter Duktape? Follows lua in spirit. (http://duktape.org/)

    Super trivial to embed - if only it would perform like LuaJIT ;)

    This is crazziness. Then, what else to expect from a man that sits down with a friend's orielly javascript book and then stands up two hours later to pronounce "I just learned javascript!"
