AJAX World RIA Conference News - World Expert on JavaScript to Speak

Yahoo!'s Eric Miraglia will look at five practical strategies for achieving high performance in Rich Web Apps

"Those of us in the business of writing rich Internet applications have seen the focus swing from how to add richness to how to manage richness and the resources it demands in the browser," says Eric Miraglia, one of the world's leading experts on "advanced JavaScript utilities and widgets" - who works for Yahoo!'s Presentation Platform Team and will be speaking in October at SYS-CON's 6th International AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo in San Jose, CA (October 20-22, 2008).

Miraglia has been involved in the creation of social web applications since 1995, when he began developing interactive writing spaces for universities and plays a critical role at Yahoo! in helping product teams realize their forward-reaching development goals. He also teaches regular classes for Yahoo! web developers.

In his session, he will look at 5 practical strategies for achieving high-performance in Rich Web Apps and how to implement them.

According to Miraglia there are a number of steps front end engineers you can take to improve the way an application feels for the end user:

    1. You can be lazy, enriching your application on-demand in response to the user's actions;
    2. You can be smart, using predictive triggers to load specific pieces of data or functionality;
    3. You can be courteous, yielding control of the browser's JavaScript thread while performing long, complicated
    4. You can be environmentally astute, reducing the number of JavaScript and DOM objects by reusing them where ever possible;
    5. You can be cost-conscious, always analyzing the real price you're paying on the performance side and recirculating that information into the design process.

Miraglia (pictured below at a previous AJAXWorld in San Jose, CA, two years ago) notes that "Steve Souders's recent volume from O'Reilly, High Performance Web Sites, and the canonical performance rules Steve pioneered with the Exceptional Performance Team at Yahoo! in recent years have helped bring data-driven order to the lore that surrounds browser performance."
