Recently, the venerable Rebecca Murphey wrote a post called Building for HTTP/2. The rise of HTTP/2 and what it means for building and deploying web applications (both on the front- and the back-end) is something that I’ve been curious about and following for the past couple years. As expected, Murphey’s take on the subject is thoughtful and thorough, with particular attention paid to what it means for “real world” developers. Something that she discusses in this piece which was not something I’d previously thought about was: whither the tooling for HTTP/2 applications? Her examination of the trade-offs and the “reality check” for the present day (and near-future) are also well worth the time.
