Http/html - web development video


Hello clojurists,

I finished the video about the web development and I notice the hardest part for me was to understand how http/html works. I very few experience with the web stack. Do you know some good materials on the web were I can learn about html forms, http methods, etc.?


I reply to myself, “Sending form data” gives a good overview -

If you have other good links I’ll be happy to read it :slight_smile:


Hi @Lud,

That’s a great question. Unfortunately, it’s a big one.

This one is a good one on Methods:


Query strings:

Response codes:

Http Headers: (In fact, check out all the links on the left)

Those should keep you busy for a while. This is honestly a really good question. When I was making the course I had to decide how much of the HTTP protocol I should teach. I had to draw the line somewhere.

Rock on!


Thanks for these useful links! It makes more sense to me now :slight_smile:


The various web browser produces tend to have some good docs - Mozilla and Opera are pretty good. Also w3 schools can be useful
