HTTP is a protocol that allows browsers and web applications to communicate across the Internet.
Everyone knows that HTTP is doing some important work, because “HTTP” is at the beginning of most URLs that you enter into your browser. You might be familiar with the request/response model, and HTTP request methods such as GET, PUT, and POST. But unless you have had a reason to learn more about the details of HTTP, you probably don’t know much more than that.
Julia Evans is a software engineer and writer who creates Wizard Zines, a series of easy-to-read online magazines that explain technical software topics. Julia’s zines include “Linux Debugging Tools”, “Help! I Have A Manager!”, and recently “HTTP: Learn your browser’s language”.
Her zines are a creative, innovative format for describing the world of software engineering while also exploring her own artistic pursuits in writing, design, and illustration. Julia was previously on the show to discuss Ruby profiling, and she returns to the show to discuss HTTP, as well as her creative process and goals with Wizard Zines.
