Partytown: Run Third-Party Scripts From a Web Worker

On this episode of React Wednesday we're welcoming Adam Bradley, creator of Partytown - a fun location for your third-party scripts to hang out.

Partytown is an awesome library that helps relocate resource intensive scripts into a web worker and off of the main thread. The idea is that in this way, it can help speed up sites by dedicating the main thread to your code, and offloading third-party scripts to a web worker.

But, possibly the coolest part is that it allows the web worker to synchronously read from the main thread.

And we can't wait to learn more about it and see it in action! Tune in and bring questions!

Shannon Hicks (@iotashan) joined us because he’s good at React Native, and having a person good at React Native is just good life advice in general.
