What Happens When I Click SUBMIT?

Walden Leverich

February 21, 2012 FASUG Meeting

Session Description:

At a high level we all know the answer, you click submit the server does something and you get a result, but how does that all work? This session will take a look behind the scenes of the web, from an understanding of what the initiates the request to a look at the communications that occur between the browser and the web server. What really happens when you complete a form? What’s a cookie, how is it passed and why do I care? I know HTTPS is more secure, but why, and how does it work? Having answers to these questions and more will enable you to write better web applications taking full advantage of the power of the web browser while providing a stable, high performance application to your end users.
