Alex Grigoryan

Director of Engineering, Walmart Labs

When @WalmartLabs built Electrode, the React/Node.js application platform that powers the Walmart.com customer experience, performance was one of our primary concerns.

React’s use of a virtual DOM and support for server-side rendering have earned it a reputation for speed, but in building our platform we encountered several unexpected performance bottlenecks. In this talk, we’ll discuss the problems we found and how we solved them.
