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.

    The worst part of it was that the software only worked intermittently and the data was not accurate. You obviously canot confront anyone about what you have discovered if the information is not right.
