Abstract

With the help of a handful of amazing open source programs, we can now transpile nearly any programming language to JS, making it a sort of modern assembly language. In a fun and code heavy talk, I’ll show how you can leverage pre existing libraries today in order to get amazing performance and features in your current web apps, creating possibilities you never dreamt possible in the web browser. To top it off, a sneak peak into what the future of web perf will look like.
