Inside Chakra - The Javascript engine

Submitted Aug 16, 2016

ChakraCore is the core part of Chakra, the high-performance JavaScript engine that powers Microsoft Edge and Windows applications written in HTML/CSS/JS. ChakraCore supports Just-in-time (JIT) compilation of JavaScript for x86/x64/ARM, garbage collection, and a wide range of the latest JavaScript features. ChakraCore also supports the JavaScript Runtime (JSRT) APIs, which allows you to easily embed ChakraCore in your applications.
This talk will introduce you to Chakra core, how you can embed it to enable scripting in your apps and services. It will also cover where we’re headed next including using ChakraCore with Node.js, bringing innovation to advance the state of the art of JavaScript debugging and updates on our cross-platform journey.
