A "plain English" guide to the technology and the terminology behind the web.
- [Voiceover] 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.
