On this episode of React Wednesdays, we welcomed Adam Bradley, creator of Partytown - a fun location for your third-party scripts to hang out.
Adam has a pretty awesome background too - he helped create Ionic Framework, built Stencil.js, and right now he's a Director of Technology at Builder.io.
His current project, Partytown is a lazy-loaded 6kb library that helps relocate resource-intensive scripts into a web worker and off of the main thread. Its goal is to help speed up sites by dedicating the main thread to your code and offloading third-party scripts to a web worker.
Adam demoed Partytown live and was awesome enough to answer all the questions TJ had! Check out Partytown's repo.

It has some features that are similar to React (component model, hooks), but also some that are quite different—for example, Solid doesn’t use a virtual DOM.
Ryan demoed Solid for us, and discussed how and why React developers might want to check out Solid.
This was a fun one as Solid is growing in popularity, and we're curious to see it in action.
