Web Tutorials

This series of tutorials provide you with an abstract overview of what happens when you use your browser to visit a website. They will help you appreciate web technology and understand what is going on during your, probably daily, online activities.

Any better understanding of the basic principles, even in a very abstract way, will make it easier for you to work in web projects and talk to web developers. The tutorials avoid going down any rabbit holes of complexity. While they encourage you to be aware of the complexity, they also encourage you to ignore the details for now.

Since you are currently using a browser to read this, it's assumed you know what a browser is. Since you used a URL to access this page or a search engine to find this page, it' assumed you know what a URL is. It is also assumed you know that a server is a computer running a software so other computers can communicate with it over a network (the internet in our case).
