Description

HTTP/2 (H2) is coming, and along with it a whole new way of communicating over the web. Connection re-use, prioritization, multiplexing, and server push are just some of the features in H2.

In this talk we’ll look at the HTTP/2 protocol, and at how we can use asynchronous request now with HTTP/1.×. We will also look at what asychronous requests and H2 mean for your API and clients in the future.
