jQuery Proven Performance Tips And Tricks (Slides)

As requested, here are the slides from my talks including links to all of the jsPerf tests embedded for each section. Summary In case you missed the talk, the main takeaway from it was the importance of performance-testing your JavaScript and jQuery code (and appreciating performance gotchas you can keep in mind when writing code that uses jQuery). I feel that this is an area developers can significantly benefit from investigating further.

If you haven't been using it, jsPerf.comis the bizness, so check it out. From the feedback so far it looks like the majority of the audience found the content useful, so please feel free to share the slides if you think they can assist other developers. Thanks I'd like to extend my thanks to Adam Sontag, JD Dalton, Mathias Bynens, Andree Hansson and others for helping tech review the slides and tests. Until next time, g'luck with your projects!

Additions to version 3 Plugin status: Obviously creating an official plugin was the biggest change Position: relative: It seemed like a lot of the questions I was getting had to do with adding position:relative to the .slider element in the CSS, so I just moved that into the script.

This is also the case with the latest version of their iPhone. But what I found interesting is the term they coined – “Retina display” and the promo image accompanying it. The image on apple.com that inspired it all What made me wonder is if it was possible to turn this static image into a fully functional “Retina effect” with only jQuery and CSS. UPDATE: Seems Apple folks have also liked the idea, and they’ve implemented it at apple.com. Step 1 – XHMTL. Fancy Sliding Form with jQuery.
