Want JavaScript performance? You got it!

January 21st, 2009

We’ve just released the beta of the JavaScript performance book we’ve been writing on for a while (we is my wife Amy Hoy and me!).

JavaScript rocks!

Without further ado:

  • More than a hundred pages on JavaScript loading performance and optimization techniques
  • The DOM Monster, a bookmarklet-based DOM analyzer, that tells you about performance problems of your page (from the perspective of the DOM, not the the network)
  • Free updates (it’s still beta, but pretty much complete anyway!)

You can also grab a table of contents at the site for the ebook.

I really hope you enjoy the ebook, and that it contains tons of stuff that you can use. Again, no matter what kind of JavaScript framework you use, the techniques described are universally usable.
