JavaScript and the Browser: Under the Hood

Presented at jQuery Conference Chicago, Sep 13, 2014.

A browser's JavaScript engine can seem like a magical black box. During this session, we'll show you how it works from 10,000 feet and give you the understanding of the main building blocks of a JavaScript engine: the parser, the virtual machine, and the run-time libraries. In addition, the complicated relationship with the web browser with a JavaScript environment will be exposed. If you are curious as to what happens under the hood when the browser modifies the DOM, handles scripted user interaction, or executes a piece of jQuery code, don’t miss this session!
