Productivity Versus Performance: Fighting The Good Fight

Productivity Versus Performance: Fighting The Good Fight – CodeBrief.

I almost wrote this article after seeing the Backbone.js vs. Ember.js animation shootout, but I couldn’t have written it better than this, not even close.

I really like the piece as a whole, but in particular the closing really sums things up:

… to fundamentally criticize a javascript framework for being slow is really to suggest that we have reached the limits of front-end web development. I sincerely hope that is not the case.

Definitely worth reading not only this piece, but checking out the animation test and in addition checking out the fundamental differences between the two frameworks resulting in the observable difference.
