Javascript Engine Essentials for Developers

This talk was given at ViennaJS January 2018 by Rainer Hahnekamp.

Google's V8 raised the execution speed of JavaScript to a level almost comparable to C++. But how do the internals affect us as developers in our daily life? Doesn't "normal written code" just run faster automatically?
In this talk (with live-coding) we will cover the basics and learn about potential pitfalls.
