This was the one and only time I intend to ever do any live coding. There was only one minor mishap, the wifi gods ruled in my favour and it was ultimately a reasonably fun talk.

Only thing I'd add is that HTTP 2 means that a lot of HTTP traffic doesn't look like what I was typing in this talk anymore.
