Matt Holt is the author of many popular projects in the Go open-source world, among them the popular Caddy web server, which pioneered support for HTTP/2 and might still be the only major web server to support automatic TLS by default.

Matt talks about his motivations for creating Caddy, how the project grew and evolved over time, what it was like to do a complete rewrite from Caddy v1 to v2, and the challenges of maintaining a very popular open-source project. He also talks about his latest project, a TCP multiplexer called Project Conncept.
