The SPDY Book: Making Websites Fly

Fear the blank page. If your website does not load in 4 seconds, 1/3 of your potential customers will close the browser never to give you a second thought. Stop losing those customers!

In The SPDY Book, you will see how to take an existing website and make it fly. You’ll see how a few SPDY additions to your application code can improve real performance by 50% or more—while still keeping your website 100% backwards compatible with older browsers. From the folks at Google, the new SPDY protocol (pronounced “Speedy”) promises this and more. Your websites will be blazingly fast, be more reliable and more secure. This book won’t stop at the surface, but will delve into specific techniques to achieve these results. You also get a deep dive into the protocol itself to better understand how SPDY really works.
