Looping Eternally Onward, or… Java Scripts Event Loop
This is in reference to the talk found at:
I hadn’t gotten deep enough into Java Script to even begin to ask the questions that this presentation started giving me some rather great answers for. Java Scripts ability to add reactive elements onto a browser page was always fascinating, but never technically puzzling and I don’t really know why it didn’t occur to me to ponder how.
Introducing the idea of the browser render as another constant-queue waiting for a stack slot as well further illuminated how the responsive nature of the browser is generated. Overall I rate this video a “Yeah, pretty solid watch.”
