Writing Fast, Memory-Efficient JavaScript

February 8, 2013

Earlier this week, I read this great article titled “Writing Fast, Memory-Efficient JavaScript” by Addy Osmani. This is a highly recommended read for anyone involved in writing JavaScript code.

The topics that I found to be particularly interesting were the apparent fact that it’s better to avoid the delete keyword and cached functions in the module pattern. The major down-side that I see when using cached functions is that you can’t have any private variables within your module. But this is highly interesting stuff, nonetheless.

If you're interested in an in-person or online course that teaches you and your team how to write maintainable unit tests and get the most out of TDD practices, make sure to have a look at our trainings and workshops or contact us at infonull@nullprincipal-itnull.be.
