Faster than C? Parsing Node.js Streams!

Thursday, June 13, 2013

In 2010 I wrote the first MySQL driver for node.js. I did it in pure JavaScript. It was fast. It was fun. A few month later, node addons using libmysql showed up in npm. They were much faster. It sucked. In 2012 I had enough and went back to to the drawing board resulting in a much faster parser. This talk will introduce you to the art of high performance work in JavaScript.
