Book Description

Web apps would run much better if heavy calculations could be performed in the background, rather than compete with the user interface. With this book, you'll learn how to use Web Workers to run computationally intensive JavaScript code in a thread parallel to the UI. Yes, multi-threaded programing is complicated, but Web Workers provide a simple API that helps you be productive without the complex algorithms.


If you have an intermediate to advanced understanding of JavaScript - especially event handling and callbacks - you're ready to tackle Web Workers with the tools in this example-driven guide.
