This version of the talk was given at Smashing Conference, Oxford, March 2016.
The onset of HTTP/2 is upon us. Now over 60% of your users browsers are be capable of interpreting requests delivered over the new protocol. But what does this really mean for us as frontend developers? How can we utilise H2’s features to deliver fast experiences? Have our best practices become anti-patterns? What is the tooling landscape like and will we need to change our existing systems?
Over the course of this talk Patrick will use new research and real-world examples from the Financial Times to put our minds at easy and – most importantly – get you excited about a future with HTTP/2.
