Going beyond HTTP at IPC in October

Just a quick one: seems that in October I’ll need to travel all my way back to Europe to speak at the international PHP Conference 2012 in its winter edition.

Subject? Oh, something that I really love:

For years we’ve been used to the HTTP protocol, one of the reasons behind the web’s success, a protocol able to scale up to bilion of requests and beyond.
But there’s more we can achieve, leveraging HTTP/1.1 hidden feature, taking a look at HTTP/2.0 and SPDY, the Google-proposed new protocol which is already making web faster.

Back to the basics: what enpowers and will enpower the web?

Still to be confirmed – flights, leave days, date – but I should be able to make it for the first time among the germans.

Hope to see you there!

It contains 160+ pages of content dedicated to securing web applications and improving your security awareness when building web apps, with chapters ranging from explaining how to secure HTTP cookies with the right flags to understanding why it is important to consider joining a bug bounty program.
