Tackling speed and performance for JavaScript



Node.js in production

Submitted Aug 29, 2016

In pursuit of easiness & familiarity, we often give up or forget to prioritize performance. We can manage to have zero downtime, if we care for it a little. May it be memory consumption, underoptimized routines or by knowing what exactly is going on with the application. Through this talk, I’m trying to help you out with things you need to take care of when running a Node.js application in production.


  • Logging, monitoring & alerts
  • Configuration management
  • Profiling & control port
  • Multi-core utilization
  • Sticky session load balancing
  • Code conventions
  • Workflows
