HTTP/3: It's all about the transport! (Benoit Jacquemont)

Video not working?

It looks like your browser may not support the H264 codec. If you're using Linux, try a different browser or try installing the gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-plugins-good packages.

Thanks! This saves us from needing to use Flash or encode videos in multiple formats. And that let's us get back to making more videos :). But as always, please feel free to message us.

SymfonyCon 2019 Amsterdam presentation by Benoit Jacquemont.

Talk slides

The announcement of HTTP/3 at the start of November 2018 may have come as a surprise for a lot of us.

Indeed, compared to the 8 years that separated HTTP/1.1 et HTTP/2, this announcement came only 4 years after the release of HTTP/2.

But the biggest surprise is under the hood, with a replacement of the transport layer.

In this talk, we will explain why this version 3 of the HTTP protocol has been designed, especially around the latency topic.

We will cover as well how technically this version works, and what it will bring to our applications, and what are the challenges that will need to be addressed, in order to fully benefit from this new version of the protocol that runs the Web.

Transcript & caption for the talk will be added soon.
