Topic: How the Web Works (part 2)
Everything You (Never) Ever Wanted to Know About the Web

by Craig Buchek

NOTE: Part 1 is to be presented at the St. Louis Unix Users Group General Meeting on 11 March.

The Web Works! You see it with the browser on you computer; but, do you know how it works? Seems that there are a lot of technical things that do wonderful things. It's more than just waving a dead chicken, magic smoke and broken mirrors. It's fun!

In part 2, we'll cover the "lower" layers of the web:

  • HTTP
  • Caching
  • Proxies
  • REST
  • HTTP/2
