Writing Quality Third-Party JS
This talk will be about all the nuances of writing third-party JS - the kind of JS that you include on your page from an external service. Examples of this are Google Analytics, Facebook’s SDK and Twitter’s @Anywhere API.
There are several factors to consider when writing third-party JS. This talk will go over the following:
- How the world of webpages is like a jungle out there, and you can never make assumptions about the environment.
- What kind of loading strategies are available to load your code
- How to provide an API to your host-page developers
- How to communicate with your server
A decent idea about web-performance techniques.
Speaker bio #
I’m Rakesh Pai, JS developer by day, and JS developer by night. I have built http://errorception.com/, a JS error tracking system. It gives users a little snippet to put into their site, much like Google Analytics, and then generates extensive reports about errors that occur in end-users’ browsers. The talk is about the lessons learnt in creating that tracking snippet.
