Ajaxian on Tamarin
Thu, 08 Feb 2007 (16:53) #
My friends at Ajaxian invited me along as a podcast guest again, and I’m so pleased with the result. Audible Ajax, Episode 20 focuses on Project Tamarin, the high-performance JavaScript VM donated by Adobe to the Mozilla project.

This episode is a bit of a change for the Ajaxians; rather than being an interview with one person or team, it’s a more formally produced analysis piece, with comments from several JavaScript and Ajax experts, only some of whom are really associated with the project. I lead off with a discussion about why current implementations of JavaScript are rather slow, but then Brendan Eich and Kevin Lynch (from Mozilla.org and Adobe, respectively) talk about the project, along with Alex Russell and representatives from the IE team and Zimbra.

Ben and Dion are planning to use a similar format for upcoming episodes, and I’m thrilled—I think it works really well, providing a continuity and depth of analysis that you just don’t get from a single interview. Bravo, guys!
