This talk gives web developers an understanding of what's going on in the layer beneath their code. By understanding HTTP you can become a more effective debugger, improve your site's cachability, design better deployment architectures, author more useful non-browser web clients such as spiders, and (most importantly) avoid a slew of subtle bugs. With an understanding of HTTP we'll look at advanced topics like HTTP request smuggling vulnerabilities and HTTP tunneling pros and cons.
