Web applications live and die by their startup speed, so it's critical
to minimize the size of the resources being downloaded.  Closure
Compiler is an open-source tool for minimizing the size of JavaScript
code to speed up JavaScript-based web apps, and is used within Google
on most JavaScript code we serve.  Closure Compiler is actually a true
compiler, rewriting JavaScript into a more condensed (but still valid)
form, reducing startup time and reducing network traffic.  Closure
Compiler also helps detect syntax, variable reference, and type errors
and warns about common JavaScript pitfalls without requiring the
developer to download and test the code.

We'll talk about the motivation for Closure Compiler, compare it with
other minification tools, and go into detail on some of the
optimizations that Closure Compiler uses to shrink code.  We'll also
talk a bit about the oddities of the JavaScript language.

Closure Compiler can be tried out on-line at closure-compiler.appspot.com.

Alan Leung is a software engineer at Google working on JavaScript
infrastructure tools. He's responsible for several of the cooler
optimizations in Closure Compiler.

Robert Bowdidge works on JavaScript infrastructure tools at Google,
and helped with the open-sourcing of Closure Compiler.  In a past
life, he implemented the Objective C refactoring support in Apple's
Xcode IDE.
