Web Directions Year round learning for web and digital professionals

Web Directions Global Scope ’21 session spotlight–Principles of Just-In-Time compilers.

Principles of Just-In-Time compilers.

Nicolas B. Pierron, Senior Software Engineer Mozilla

JavaScript gets faster as it executes! Just-In-Time (JIT) compilers are used in all major JavaScript engines to improve the speed, but how do they work? By understanding the principles of JIT compilation, web developers have the opportunity to optimize their code.

We’ll learn all about it as Global Scope, our brand new 100% JavaScript focussed conference.
