JS and Parallel Processing(!?)

by Joe Karlsson

For a long time, JavaScript was missing any kind of processing threads. While the single-threaded model added to developer comfort, it also made the platform unable to do serious and time consuming calculations, and the only way to circumvent it was to do it on a remote server. Luckily, with the introduction and widespread adoption of Web Workers, we can now do resource-intensive calculations on background threads. In this talk, we will explore Web Workers, how and when you can use them, and their peculiarities.
