  • Andrew Betts (Clearing User Cache) and Hooman Beheshti (Revisiting HTTP/2)

    The Financial Times - 6th Floor Conference Suite

    For this and all future events please see our new website https://ldnwebperf.org where you can signup for group emails and tickets to our events. No reservations from meetup.com are accepted. This month we have Andrew Betts who will be telling us all about clearing you users cache and Hooman Beheshti who will be revisiting HTTP/2. Six ways to clear your users’ cache A session presented by Andrew Betts Skill level: Intermediate / Advanced Clearing the browser cache from afar is pretty hard. You ship a bad version of an asset, and aside from phoning all your users and asking them politely to clear their cache, what can you do? Turns out this is way more nuanced and complex than you might think. Revisiting HTTP/2 A session presented by Hooman Beheshti Skill level: Intermediate / Advanced RFC 7540 was ratified over 2 years ago and, today, all major browsers, servers, and CDNs support the next generation of HTTP. Just over a year ago, at Velocity (https://www.slideshare.net/Fastly/http2-what-no-one-is-telling-you), we discussed the protocol, looked at some real world implications of its deployment and use, and what realistic expectations we should have from its use. Now that adoption is ramped up and the protocol is being regularly used on the Internet, it's a good time to revisit the protocol and its deployment. Has it evolved? Have we learned anything? Are all the features providing the benefits we were expecting? What's next? In this session, we'll review protocol basics and try to answer some of these questions based on real-world use of it. We'll dig into the core features like interaction with TCP, server push, priorities and dependencies, and HPACK. We'll look at these features through the lens of experience and see if good practice patterns have emerged. We'll also review available tools and discuss what protocol enhancements are in the near and not-so-near horizon.

To follow Arianna we will have Andy Davies who will give those of you that did not attend the recent SmashingConf to hear his talk “A/B Testing, Ads and other 3rd Party Tags” where will will take another look at one of our favourite web performance subjects.
