We’ll provide the free pizza and craft beer — and you can come enjoy a night of networking and intelligent conversation on HTTP/2 and web performance.
The main event of the evening will be Load Impact founder Ragnar Lonn showing off HTTP/2 vs. HTTP/1.1: A Performance Analysis, an innovative application that helps web developers understand how their websites will perform on HTTP/2.
