great to know this history of how we got here, would love to see more examples in PHP/preloading

This was a really well presented talk. You could tell Ben was very well prepared and knew the information he was presenting. Presentation style was good with good pace - not too fast, not too slow. Great job!

Excellent overview of the history of HTTP and all the new bells and whistles of HTTP 2. Good pacing, though having time for Q&A would have been more ideal. Definitely appreciated the advice on things we can do with HTTP 2 right now. Illustrations of what using preloading looks like and debugging HTTP 2 requests were great.

Very informative discussion. A brief history of HTTP/1 and its movement toward HTTP/2 and some concrete examples about how the developer (especially PHP developer) can make use of HTTP/2 today.
I enjoyed both the material and the presentation style.
Thank you!

Great talk. Well researched history of HTTP, presented at a great pace.

Great talk. Love the history and the explanation was very thorough.

Very satisfying.

Thanks for the details on what was as well as what's coming, and why I should care. Went in knowing little about HTTP/1.1 and now have a passable chance at understanding HTTP/2

Really good overview of the history of HTTP/1.0 through HTTP/2. Lots of useful technical information as to what RFCs are current and which ones are invalid. Could have been a little bit more in depth as to how we can prepare to HTTP/2 in PHP land and what will be different.

Excellent talk, lots of good information, loved the history and timelines

Although the preloading stuff was cool i would have preferred to see some practical examples of stuff with php in HTTP 2 and any changes that might need to be made to accommodate the stuff that is already spec'd and implemented :)

Very solid session. Lots of history, would have been nice to get a little more "how to implement things today" info.

Good summation of the newer version of the Spec and how it effects the developer.

Really enjoyed the talk, well organized and the history of http was super helpful. Excited about using http/2 in future projects, Perfect amount of info to digest and understand in one setting to get an idea of what http/2 can do.

Great history condensed quickly

This was a very useful introduction to the evolution of HTTP2. As someone who has not spent any time reading about SPDY or HTTP2 up to this point, I think it has given me the necessary information to start using the new features now.

I enjoyed this talk. You obviously have a passion about HTTP ("in case you want to argue about RFCs, as you do") and you know this topic well. The only thing I was disappointed about was I feel like a little too much time was spent on the background of HTTP/1 and the HTTP/2 part was rushed to accommodate the timeslot. I would have loved to see more about HTTP/2 in the talk.

That said the content was great and I thought the examples you used showing the benefits of server push were excellent. I hope to see this talk again.

Excellent overview of the history of HTTP and what new features are part of HTTP/2. Plenty of useful examples of how it works as well as tools to help log and work with the requests.

This was a very informative and interesting talk. Ben covered some of the concepts I had wondered about with HTTP2 and also explained how it came to be in the first place. His speaking style was nice and understandable.

So much great content packed into this talk! There's a lot of history behind the HTTP spec but I would've traded 5 minutes of HTTP/1 spec history for what else is new in HTTP/2.

A nice shallow dive into HTTP. I appreciated all of the RFC mentions; I will be looking into some of these later! This is a style of talk I enjoy: the speaker was matter-of-fact, but also humble; the slides contained just the right amount of information to not distract from what the speaker was saying; it's shallow enough to let the audience know that there's so much more if only we'd look.
