HTTP/2 and Async APIs


Comments are closed.

Davey generated excitement in the audience for HTTP/2 in this excellent talk. The slides were very well crafted and he was so comfortable on stage it made for very very smooth transitions throughout this talk. Davey is a top-level speaker that others aspire to be like.

Davey managed to take me from 0 to HOLY CRAP I NEED THIS within the span of his talk.
What surprised me most, in hindsight, was that he managed to do this without ever making HTTP/2 seem inaccessible or hard to implement.

I've seen an HTTP/2 talk or two that focused a little more on the spec of the thing, but this one was very applied, with plenty of examples...including code samples...and a ton of energy. Fitting, given that Davey was one of the folks pushing for H2 CURLOPT support within PHP.

Included in the examples were pieces of info thatsimplified HTTP/2 implementation enough for me that I think I might actually go out and do it...particularly now that Amazon has a load balancer product (Application Load Balancer) that's up for the job!
