QUIC and HTTP/3: the next step in web performance

English session - Intermediate

In recent years, the ways that we can deliver HTTP has improved in occasional leaps, from 1.0, 1.1, a big step to 2.0, and now 3.0. One of the biggest obstacles has been TCP, which isn't a great fit for HTTP, but we are stuck with it – or are we? QUIC is a reimagining of TCP that runs over "the other protocol", UDP, giving us yet another step up in performance and security. Discover how it works, and how you can deploy it today.

Techie Talk – Better English in technical reports

English session - Beginner

Technical people are often terrible at writing, or English is often not their native language, and that's a recipe for dull, incomprehensible prose.
