You use it every day, for banking, researching, shopping, and social media, but do you really know how the web works? In this course, author James Williamson introduces the technology that makes the web run, the terminology involved, and how it all comes together to power the websites we know and love. He covers the alphabet soup of technologies involved (HTML, CSS, URL, DNS, HTTP, and IPv6), and explains what separates the front end (what we see) from the back end (what we don't) on the web. This course is your "plain English" guide to the world of domains, databases, servers, and the technology that makes the web work.
Hi, I'm James Williamson. Senior author here at lynda.com and I wanna welcome you to Web Technology Fundamentals. This course is designed to introduce you to the fundamental concepts surrounding the technology that's used to create and run the Web. For anyone new to the web, the sheer number of terms, abbreviations, and processes involved can be a little bit overwhelming. It's my goal to explain in basic terms how the web works, the terminology involved, and how the technology all fits together. We'll start by looking at a general overview of the web itself, and then go into the specifics of how front end and back end technologies work together to form functioning websites. We'll also explore the technology that makes it easier for web designers and developers to build complex sites quickly. Sound interesting? Awesome! Let's get started.
