Introduction to HTTP1:22 with Chris Ramacciotti
HTTP stands for HyperText Transfer Protocol and represents a format of communication between two devices over the internet.
Hi, I'm Chris and I'm a teacher here at Tree House.
If you're here taking courses at Tree House, chances are that eventually you'll
want to make something and that thing whether it's an iOS app Android app or
web app with Java, Ruby, PHP, Node.js, Python or what have you.
This app will likely involve some sort of internet connection.
Maybe you're making a website for your family's new cured meat business.
And you want to establish a web presence by communicating
to potential customers in your region.
Or maybe you've written the latest animated gif library so that your future
users can log in and share their craziest animated cat gifs in their browsers.
Or maybe you've just jammed together a sweet IoS app
with Swift that allows your users minute by minute
forecast data by connecting to a remote weather data provider.
In any of these cases, you'll be communicating over the internet.
Now I'm not gonna show you how to code any of these apps.
You can check out our extensive library of programming courses to do that.
What I will do in this course is help you understand the language that's used to
communicate over the internet, it's called HTTP or Hyper Text Transfer Protocol.
And it is the set of rules that govern how two devices
should communicate with each other over the internet.
