Those days of dumping JQuery blindly have gone. In 95% of the cases, you have easier, faster and build in alternative. Moreover, the so called "best practices" that you have been trusting for years could actually harm your application.

You don’t need to be an expert to write high performance JavaScript.

The goal of this session is to explain critical/confusing parts of JavaScript like scope, closure, hoisting, event bubbles, DOM manipulation, etc. so that your grandma can understand and make her own standards or best practices for you. Besides, modern tools that could make you a rock star to debug performance related issues will also be demonstrated.
