Investigate pros/cons of SPDY
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Since the back-end supports SPDY (T35890), we should look into its effects on the mobile apps and whether it makes sense to use SPDY connections in lieu of standard/legacy HTTP. On iOS, this could be simple as adding Twitter's NSURLProtocol handler. [0]

Prerequisites

  • Define metrics
  • Define test plan

Acceptance criteria

  • Obtained preliminary data by running tests on a device in a variety of simulated network conditions
  • (Stretch?) Obtained real-world data by A/B testing SPDY in beta/app-store builds and sending logs to server
