Building high performance websites is hard—let's go shopping! Better yet, let's take the best ideas from the past 10 years on how to improve HTTP and wrap them up in a brand new protocol named SPDY. In the SPDY Book, you will learn all of the secrets behind this new protocol from Google, including:

  • Compressing everything
  • Multiplexing requests and responses in a single stream
  • Writing directly to the browser's cache
  • Step-by-step examples of how to SPDY-ize existing HTTP sites

Google is already using it in production on all of their sites to make their services even faster. Why shouldn't your websites do the same?
