The announcement of HTTP/3 at the start of November 2018 may have come as a surprise for a lot of us.

Indeed, compared to the 18 years that separated HTTP/1.1 et HTTP/2, this announcement came only 4 years after the release of HTTP/2.

But the biggest surprise is under the hood, with a replacement of the transport layer.

In this talk, we will explain why this version 3 of the HTTP protocol has been designed, especially around the latency topic.

We will cover as well how technically this version works, and what it will bring to our applications, and what are the challenges that will need to be addressed, in order to fully benefit from this new version of the protocol that runs the Web.

Interesting subject, but the French accent made it sip hard to too follow at times, that even the cc turned into gibberish.

Really enjoyed the talk as it was sufficiently technical in nature, well structured, and well explained Made for some interesting information about what's coming down the, proverbial, pipeline.

Outstanding talk diving deeply into the whys and hows of http 2 & 3, and really clearly conveyed all concepts with great graphics, diagrams and animations, peppered with an engaging pinch of humor.

A great explanation of the benefits of HTTP/3 and the problems it solves, very cool to learn about QUIK - I loved seeing how the packets behave differently in this system. Very well done!

Really good explanation. Thank you!

Great introduction to HTTP/3, everything you need to know what to do when HTTP/3 really gets traction. I especially liked the real-life analogies and all the helpful illustrations.

Great explanation of http3. However the presentation was too long for the subject for my taste.

Id have loved to see some implementation examples


I thought you really explained the inner workings of HTTP/3 (and TCP, TLS) without going into too much details. No code samples, no unpacking of network packets and stuff like that. Well done!

Good explanation on HTTP 3 and 2 as well.
