Port Townsend Web Developers Meetup

Port Townsend Web Developers Meetup

As we all enjoy the donuts, dancing and fireworks at the Old School Fourth of July and honor our country's independence at other gatherings around the community, perhaps we should also take a moment to recognize a technology that has brought freedom to citizens around the world: HTTP.

The internet has essentially open-sourced all kinds of information, giving people all across the world access to knowledge and opportunity. It allows us to learn, to connect, and to spread the finest cat videos across the land. But do you know how HTTP, the very backbone of the internet, works?

To help us understand, Matthew Gill, security consultant, software engineer and team lead at ServiceNow, will give a presentation on HTTP: what it is, how it works, and how browsers use it. At this presentation, we will explore the protocol and all the caveats of its use, including caching, cookies, CORS, compression, COMET and more.

We'll meet at the Colab in downtown Port Townsend. The Fort George Brewery beer bucket will be on hand to enhance our learning experience. If you have any questions, feel free to send an email.

See you there!

Once again we will be at The CoLab and we will be doing announcements and show-and-tell before the presentation starts. If you have any questions, feel free to post in the comments.

Thank you to Totera Web Systems for sponsoring our meetings and The CoLab for providing a wonderful space to meet!
