A couple weeks ago, I posted a link to the Nettuts+ article “HTTP: The Protocol Every Web Developer Must Know – Part 1” by Pavan Podila. That was the first part of a two-part article, covering what every Web developer ought to know about the Hypertext Transfer Protocol. That article explained the fundamentals of HTTP, and is something that that truly every Web developer should read.
Nettuts+ just posted Part 2. In this article, Podila goes into:
- Connection handling
- Identification and authorization
It’s useful, detailed stuff, and understanding these fundamentals will help you better appreciate the how’s and why’s of web development.
