The SPDY (pronounced “SPeeDY”) protocol allows web sites to be transmitted more efficiently to the web browser, using stream multiplexing, header compression, and server-initiated resource pushes. SPDY is now implemented in several browsers, servers, and CDNs, including Chrome, Firefox, and Apache, with more on the way.
In this talk we’ll start with a quick overview of SPDY and the mechanisms it employs to improve latency. We’ll then discuss the current options available for enabling SPDY on your own sites, and go over best practices and tools for optimizing your site for SPDY delivery, such as server push and TCP window size tuning. We’ll finish with a live demo, enabling and optimizing a site for SPDY.
