Your Script Just Killed My Site by Steve Souders

We attended a huge g33k gathering in San Jose not long ago - the TechXploration meetup where we were lucky enough to record an exciting talk by web performance guru Steve Souders. Steve was accompanied by (Javascript wizard) Douglas Crockford for a talk called "Your Script Just Killed My Site" about the prevalence of front-end SPOF (that's "single point of failure") along with key tips as to how to make your front-end code more resilient.
