Unorthodox Javascript Performance

John-David Dalton wants to improve JavaScript performance. To do so, he has developed some unique and unconventional techniques. He has also developed a “utility library delivering consistency, customization, performance, and extras,” called Lo-Dash.

While John is an advocate for performance, he wants to do it in a smart way, saying at times that he has seen “JavaScript developers focus on performance to the point that it’s a negative.” He is currently a Program Manager at Microsoft, making web apps run master and smoother in Internet Explorer, and a contributor to several open source projects that help developers to write more productive JavaScript. These are his thoughts on what really matters when we talk about performance.
