What HTTP/2.0 will* do for you

What HTTP/2.0 will* do for you

HTTP/1.1 has been the predominant protocol of the Web (and much more) for more than a decade, but Mike Belshe and Roberto Peon’s SPDY proposal has quickly focused attention on doing something better.

As a result, the IETF HTTPbis Working Group has started working on HTTP/2.0, based upon SPDY. While the primary focus is on performance and network-friendliness, it’s already clear that HTTP/2.0 will change how we design, deploy and operate the Web, as well as expand what we use HTTP for even further.

This talk explores these effects, how we might take advantage of them, and potential problems that might arise.
