There is nothing better than learning from the best and no one has more presence in the field of applications for TV than Netflix.

In this episode of the series Netflix JavaScript Talks, Steve McGuire talks about one of the most important aspects in the development of applications for Smart TV: UI performance.

Smart TV’s despite being devices with the latest in technology, are not characterized by having the best processing power (note that they do not have the same processing power as a common modern PC) so to provide the best user experience is necessary to improve the performance of our applications.

Steve McGuire talks about the use of React.js and the basic principles that a company like Netflix continues to provide the best experience for its users.

“Steve McGuire shares how Netflix achieved a completely declarative, React-based architecture that’s fast on the devices in your living room. In this talk he covers how and why Netflix adhered to principles like no refs, no observation, no mixins or inheritance, immutable state, and top-down rendering. He also shares techniques the team used to hit tough performance targets, while not compromising the architecture.”
