Web Directions Global Scope 2021 All about JavaScript the language

Session Details

Tim Kadlec

Fully Scripted

Tim Kadlec Performance Engineering Fellow Catchpoint

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.
