Web Directions Conferences for web and digital professionals

Video Ristretto: Memory Management in V8 – Hadi Michael

Hadi MichaelContinuing the theme of performance from the Monday Wrap of Yoav’s talk – a theme that was quite evident at Code 16 and, not surprisingly, will feature again at Code 17 – our short video this week is of Hadi Michael’s talk from last year’s Code.

Hadi is someone to keep your eye on. A Product Developer, Software Engineer and Technology Adviser, formerly at Deloitte Digital, he’s been at Cambridge University lately, getting his Masters degree in Technology Policy. You will see him at future Web Directions events.

Back at Code 16, Hadi talked about a prosaic but significant process, garbage collection in JavaScript and how it affects performance and the overall user experience. 25 minutes well spent.



Got your ticket for 2017 yet?

For Code 17, we’re putting together a truly remarkable two-day program of international and local speakers digging into front end engineering and development, coming to Melbourne (only) on 3-4 August. Come and join us!
