Curious to know how the web works? In this meetup, we’ll look at the inner-workings of the Internet from a high level. We’ll go over concepts such as client/server, HTTP requests & responses, and DNS. Next, we’ll jump into the components of a website and look into what it takes to build a static website. Expect to code a very basic website!
This is an extremely beginner friendly meetup. Everyone is welcome, regardless of experience level.
