Michael Starzinger: The Footprint of Performance [45min]

You probably heard that JavaScript VMs are becoming faster with every day. But did you know that they have to consume additional memory to make your complex app faster? We are going to get our hands dirty and break down the overhead modern JavaScript VM optimizations are bringing with them. We’ll make sure that you can write your app to run blazingly fast without gobbling up all of your users’ RAM.

My name is Michael Starzinger, I am a Software Engineer at Google and have been working on V8 for over a year now. My focus is on both compiler improvements and garbage collection. I care passionately about speed and memory when it comes to virtual machines. As a virtual machine aficionado I have been working on an open-source Java VM and other compilers for several years before.
