The JavaScript Event Loop Presentation (2016).

This is a presentation I gave at a 2016 Open Table Meetup, which was a revamped version of a talk I gave back in 2013 at Penguicon. It covers the single-threaded nature of JavaScript, what it means to perform work in the current stack versus scheduling it to be done in the future, and how this can lead to buggy rendering performance if you’re not careful.

The slides are also hosted on GitHub at tlhunter/presentation-javascript-event-loop.
