Title: Things Every Developer Should Know About HTTP
Abstract: HTTP is by far the most common application layer protocol in the world. You have been using it in your applications for as long as you can remember. But do you know how it really works? Have you ever wondered how HTTP caches really work? What the heck is HTTP Chunked transfer and what is it good for? And how many HTTP status codes there really are?
In this session we will take a look at some of HTTP’s hidden gems and see how we can unleash them to enhance our HTTP based applications.
