HTTP/3 library: authors wanted

by dmitri (Priest)
on Feb 21, 2019 at 13:53 UTC ( [id://1230307] : perlnews . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

This is a public service announcement (cross-posted from here).

By now, everyone has heard that HTTP/3 is coming. Based on Google's QUIC protocol that began as an experiment circa 2012, IETF QUIC and HTTP/3 are likely to become standards this year.

My employer, LiteSpeed Technologies, has been actively participating in the standardization process. We have also open-sourced several of our C libraries, QUIC (and HTTP/3!) Client and QPACK among them.

It would be cool if Perl were one of the first to get its own HTTP/3 or QPACK library. This is a call for a volunteer -- someone who is looking for a new project that is sure to get a lot of mileage. I would be glad to help augment our libraries to facilitate this process.

    Thanks for posting this here, and providing the opportunity!

    Unfortunately, I'm personally a bit booked right now to fully take the lead, but I'd definitely be available to assist if someone else wants to take charge, I'd particularly be interested with helping in any work that entails wrapping and handling of any C libraries with Perl.
