Book Description

This book provides a hands-on overview of what every web developer needs to know about the various types of networks (WiFi, 3G/4G), transport protocols (UDP, TCP, and TLS), application protocols (HTTP/1.1, HTTP/2), and APIs available in the browser (XHR, WebSocket, WebRTC, and more) to deliver the best - fast, reliable, and resilient - user experience.

How prepared are you when it comes to building network-enabled applications? This book provides what every web developer should know about the network - from fundamental limitations that affect performance to major innovations for building even more powerful browser apps. By understanding what the browser can and cannot do, you'll be able to make better design decisions and deliver faster web applications to your users.

Author Ilya Grigorik - a developer advocate and web performance engineer at Google - starts with the building blocks of TCP and UDP, and then dives into newer technologies such as HTTP 2.0, WebSockets, and WebRTC. This book explains the benefits of these technologies and helps you determine which ones to use for your next application.
