Episode 90 - Partytown with Adam Bradley

Adam Bradley is the Director of Technology at Builder.io and co-creator of Partytown, a lazy-loaded library to help relocate resource intensive scripts off the main thread and into a web worker.

In this episode we discuss making sites significantly more performant by offloading third party scripts into a web worker with Partytown, how Partytown fits into the larger suite of tools that Builder.io is working on including Qwik, and cross-compiling any frontend UI library with Mitosis.
