HTTP/2 has been out for about a year. Over that time, Michael Gooding and Javier Garza have worked with many customers to implement it. However, beyond a turnkey solution that offers instant performance gains, HTTP/2 has led to a large amount of questions and confusion about how to optimize for it. Michael and Javier share their experiences with HTTP/2 over the last year, discussing case studies that demonstrate how performance can be improved over HTTP/2 while addressing backward compatibility, exploring using RUM data to review performance-related observations of customers after switching to HTTP/2, and offering hands-on demos of HTTP/2 with server push and HTTP/2 + QUIC.
Michael Gooding is a web performance evangelist for Akamai Technologies, where he helps customers identify performance bottlenecks and solves often complex problems. With 10 years’ experience in the IT industry, Michael started professional life as a developer but moved into consultancy when performance issues started to become the norm and not the exception. Previously, he worked for the NCC Group (formerly Site Confidence), helping customers from all industries improve the performance of their sites. Michael is constantly researching latest optimizations trends and current techniques and sits on the organizing committee of the London Web Performance Group. Michael has found himself becoming more and more impatient as he gets older, which fuels his desire for a faster web experience.
Javier Garza is a multi-lingual developer evangelist who loves taking things apart, understanding how things work, and finding the best and most practical ways of improving them. Javier started hacking Basic-based computer games at the age of 9. He has been working with computers for more than 25 years in Spain, Germany, and the USA (half of those at Akamai, helping the largest websites on the Internet run faster and more securely).
