Last week, at a local PHP User-Group in Leuven, I gave a first version of my presentation on HTTP/2.

I still consider it a rough draft and it’ll be finetuned more. The plan is to let this presentation evolve as more data surrounding HTTP/2 (real life benchmarks, proven best practices, …) gets out.

Here are the slides:

If the slides won’t load, they’re up on SpeakerDeck.

If you attended the talk, I appreciate feedback at the pages.

What’s going in the next version (aka: things I missed in this one):

  • Upgrade path: how does an HTTP/1.1 connection upgrade to HTTP/2
  • Live demo: HTTP/1.1 vs HTTP/2 server benchmark

I’m really looking forward to giving this presentation a couple of more times, the subject is super interesting and if the previous audience was any reference – everyone’s eager to get started with HTTP/2.
