Making React 70% faster with Aiden Bai of Million.js

React is an immensely popular JavaScript library that is used to build website user interfaces. A key feature of React is that it uses a virtual Document Object Model, or DOM, to selectively update the desired regions of the web page, which provides major performance advantages. Million.js is an open source project that provides an optimized virtual DOM. Remarkably, these optimizations make React up to 70% faster and the code weighs in at less than 4 kilobytes in size. Aiden Bai is the creator of Million.js and he joins us in this episode.
