This interview is part of our six-part series On Tour @ #perfnow.
At the beginning of November, we attended a new conference in Amsterdam called performance.now(). performance.now() is put together by no-one less than Steve Souders and Tim Kadlec, two well known experts in the performance circus. And they teamed up with the people running the CSS Day. What they put together was nothing short of amazing. They had 16 of the most talented speakers flying in from all over the world, and we got the opportunity to interview a few of them!
With Natasha Rooney we got an expert on networking and protocols with us. We discuss where the web came from with HTTP/1.0, what HTTP/2 solved and where it could do better. This leads us to speak about the work of the QUIC protocol working group which is now being standardised by the IETF as HTTP/3.
