The JavaScript community has been using compilers for little over a decade for optimizing and transforming our source code. From the initial introduction of minifers like YUI Compressor to source-to-source compilers like Babel, it's unquestionable the benefit that compilers have provided. With the introduction of technologies like WASM and projects like the Glimmer VM, you are starting to see the rise of compilers that aren't simply transforming JavaScript, but rather compiling source code into much lower level code.

In this talk you will discover why more advanced compilers are at the core of the next evolution of web performance.
