The O(1) frameworks

Existing frameworks do not scale. As applications become more complex, they get slower and existing patterns put too much responsibility on the developer to avoid it. On top of that, current frameworks rely on hydration, a technique that is pure overhead even when it’s partial.

Hydration as a concept will disappear, and we will start talking about resumability, progressiveness, and partiality… What does all these fuzzy words mean and why does it matter?

At Builder, we are building Partytown and Qwik, a new stack that delivers zero blocking JS with instant user interactivity, built in reactivity and the same DX as React.

This paradigm shift aims to build extremely complex applications that scale without performance degradation and negative trade offs of developer experience.

About

During my entire career, I have been building APIs and tools for other developers. Very early in my life, I wanted to make a game for my father's iPhone and soon realized that I liked contributing more to the game engine (cocos2d) than building the game itself.

I worked for 5 years as native iOS developer building native SDKs, then created the Gin Web Framework (the most popular framework in Golang) and then finally moved to the web, when I joined the framework team at Ionic, building Ionic and Stencil.

Founded a company to bring medical imaging to the web and now I am part of the open source team at Builder.io, building Qwik and Partytown.
