[MUSIC] 0:00 Hi, I'm Chris and I'm a teacher here at Tree House. 0:04 If you're here taking courses at Tree House, chances are that eventually you'll 0:07 want to make something and that thing whether it's an iOS app Android app or 0:13 web app with Java, Ruby, PHP, Node.js, Python or what have you. 0:17 This app will likely involve some sort of internet connection. 0:22 Maybe you're making a website for your family's new cured meat business. 0:27 And you want to establish a web presence by communicating 0:31 to potential customers in your region. 0:33 Or maybe you've written the latest animated gif library so that your future 0:36 users can log in and share their craziest animated cat gifs in their browsers. 0:40 Or maybe you've just jammed together a sweet IoS app 0:44 with Swift that allows your users minute by minute 0:48 forecast data by connecting to a remote weather data provider. 0:50 In any of these cases, you'll be communicating over the internet. 0:55 Now I'm not gonna show you how to code any of these apps. 0:58 You can check out our extensive library of programming courses to do that. 1:01 What I will do in this course is help you understand the language that's used to 1:05 communicate over the internet, it's called HTTP or Hyper Text Transfer Protocol. 1:09 And it is the set of rules that govern how two devices 1:16 should communicate with each other over the internet. 1:19
