For people working with web sites and web applications, there is never a lack of new things to learn. HTTP/2 is one of these things. It will be in a very significant role in both the lives of developers and users of all web services. Somewhat contrarily it won't change anything to the users of these. Or even the developers.

Varnish is a popular reverse proxy which is used to accelerate page loading by caching copies as static HTML. Varnish does not support SSL/TLS, which is in practise required to take use of the new HTTP/2 protocol. This article describes one way of achieving high performance using Varnish and HTTP/2.

HTTP/2 as a protocol was locked down in February 2015 and published in the May of same year. It's the first major revamp of the most important (IMHO) protocol since 1999. It's no silver bullet, but the upgrade offers improvements that will make a big difference when applied in scale. Help save the planet (yes, really) and start deploying today!
