What Web Developers Should Know About HTTP

Thursday, February 23, 2012

I tried to think of everything a web developer should know about HTTP, then recorded those things into a Pluralsight course: HTTP Fundamentals.

In the course you'll look at HTTP messages, message headers, cookies, caching, and authentication protocols. You'll see HTTP work from a low level TCP/IP perspective using Wireshark and System.Net.Sockets. But, you'll also see HTTP from a higher level architectural perspective and learn to think of the Web as an extension of your application's architecture.

Persistent connections, proxy servers, and content negotiation – it's all there. Give it a try.

Wireshark and Sockets

I can't say enough good things about this HTTP Fundamentals presentation. I've learned more about this topic in a few hours than I've learned in the last twenty years.

I'm currently learning this module it's quiet a good refresher but also a lot of new materials which I've not learnt in college.

Thanks a lot Scott, I'm also studying your C# Fundamentals course but certain areas are still hard to digest :).
