Demystifying Web Workers
Submitted by ajay poshak (@ajayposhak) on Saturday, 11 August 2018
This talk will outlay basics of web workers, their usage in modern web apps, and caveats while implementing them. At the end of the talk, audience will have a idea about when to use web workers, when NOT to use it and how to implement it.
This is a rough mind map of talk topics:
- What is a Web Worker ?
- When to use it in a modern PWA ?
- Under the Hood (Structured cloning algo, transferable objects)
- Some performance improvements
- A real life example of Web Workers
