Event Details

HTTP is, hands down, one of the most important and successful protocols. That said, the use cases it was originally “designed” for have evolved, and the very success of the protocol has also exposed many of its 1.x limitations – e.g. forcing developers to invent many application workarounds  (sharding, concatenation, spriting, inlining, etc.), which resulted in further regressions leading to  poor cache efficiency, unnecessary downloads, delayed execution, and so on. That said, the good news is that HTTP/2 not only fixes all of this, but also  enables many new opportunities for optimizing performance both within and outside the browser. 

In this talk we’ll take a ground up look at HTTP/2: review the new binary protocol; discuss new features and capabilities; talk about interop, adoption trends, and deployment best practices.
