HTTP/2 (H2) is coming, and along with it comes a whole new way of communicating over the web. Connection reuse, prioritization, multiplexing, and server push are just some of the features in H2. Davey Shafik explores the HTTP/2 protocol, explains how to use asynchronous requests right now with HTTP/1.x, and discusses what asynchronous requests and H2 mean for your API and clients in the future.
