MozCampAsia2012/Schedule/desktopandmobile/spidermonkey internals 1
Title of Session (should also be the title of your Wiki page): SpiderMonkey: Inside the Belly of the Beast (Part I: Objects)
Facilitator(s): E.J.P. Bruel
Are you paid or volunteer staff?: Paid staff
Area of Contribution (Team Name): Add-on SDK team
How are you currently involved with the community?:
As one of the platform devs for the Add-on SDK team, I've become a regular contributor to SpiderMonkey. I've implemented features such as direct proxies, and am currently working on modules. I'm also an active participant on the #jsapi channel. Knowing from mw own experience how intimidating SpiderMonkey can be for newbies, I try to help out enthusiastic newcomers where I can.
Location of Work (where do you reside?): Utrecht, Netherlands
Talk Length (please choose between 30, 60, 90, 120 minutes): 60min
This is the first in a series of two talks.
This particular talk will focus on how SpiderMonkey's bytecode interpreter works, and how objects are implemented internally. The second talk will focus on functions.
Both talks are designed to leave ample time for the audience to ask questions, or talk about things they found to be slower than expected.
How your session furthers the MozCamp Goals:
Expected Outcome or Deliverable:
Participants will leave knowing probably more than they should about how JS engines work. More importantly, though, they will *also* leave with some practical real-world tips on writing faster and more efficient JS code.'
Desired Audience Type or Skill-set:
Equipment Needs (Video projector already included): None
