Web Directions Year round learning for web and digital professionals

Web Directions Global Scope ’21 session spotlight–Fully Scripted

Fully Scripted

Tim Kadlec, Performance Engineering Fellow Catchpoint

In one of over a dozen presentations at Global Scope, our brand new 100% JavaScript focussed conference, we hear from Tim Kadlec, on the current state of real world JavaScript.

JavaScript has come a long way from its humble origins as the last of the three web cornerstones (alongside CSS and HTML). We use more JavaScript than ever, spending 14 times as many bytes on it as we do for HTML and 6 times as many bytes as we do for CSS.

Nothing is free, though, and that’s particularly true of JavaScript. In this session, we’ll look at the current state of JavaScript—how much we use, how we use it, and what the impact is.
