QUIC & HTTP/3: Open Standards and Open Source Code
About the Talk
QUIC and HTTP/3 are new Internet protocols, under development in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), aimed to improve the security and performance of communication. In this talk, we’ll explore the importance of open standards and how GitHub has become a large part in the day-to-day activities of the QUIC Working Group. We’ll also see why open source implementations and interoperability testing play a critical role in standards development. The talk will conclude with hands-on advice for getting started with quiche, an implementation written in Rust, along with some tips for testing out HTTP/3 websites in your favorite browser.
