Talk title

The Secrets Behind Angular’s Lightning Speed

Talk description

Angular developers rarely have the need to write super optimized code. In application development we tend to favor readability over optimization. But this approach doesn’t guarantee fast execution of the code.

With frameworks, the situation is reversed. Frameworks have to be really fast. Interestingly, there are techniques that make JavaScript code run faster. You’ve probably heard about monomorphism, bit fields or bloom fliters, right? Maybe you've even used some of them. Over the past year I’ve seen them all and a bunch of other interesting techniques while reverse-engineering Angular.

In this talk I want to share my findings with you. You may end up applying this knowledge at work or, who knows, may even use it to make Angular run even faster.

Key takeaways

  1. Monomorphic code executes up to 100 times faster than polymorphic

  2. Bloom filters can be used as efficient optimization layer for fast search

  3. Angular's compiler significantly contributes to the speed of the framework
