Asynchronous APIs! This will be hosted at Vivint at Thanksgiving Point!

*Talk: HTTP/2 and Asynchronous APIs*

HTTP/2 (H2) is coming, and along with it a whole new way of communicating
over the web. Connection re-use, prioritization, multiplexing, and server
push are just some of the features in H2.

In this talk we'll look at the HTTP/2 protocol, and at how we can use
asynchronous request now with HTTP/1.x. We will also look at what
asychronous requests and H2 mean for your API and clients in the future.

*Venue: Vivint*

3401 Ashton Blvd
Lehi, Utah 84043

How to get there:
The address is 3401 Ashton Blvd, though some mapping tools put that a
little far down the street (if so, try 2719 Ashton Blvd instead). It's the
first office building south of the intersection, nearest to the Dickeys BBQ
on the corner.

Just come in the front door and we'll be on the first floor, to the right.

The front door will be locked, but there's a guard on duty right inside
that can let folks in, and we're really close to the front door, so we
should be able to help people get in pretty easily.

If you can't get in, call 801-391-8249 and we'll get you in!

Look forward to seeing everyone on Thursday!
