There are some basic concepts about how the web works that I keep coming back to, and re-explaining.  I’ve decided to create a series of handouts under a Creative Commons license so that people are free to copy them and re-distribute them to help them to explain these concepts to others.  I plan to keep a few handy at my desk.

The first in this series is called HTTP Request and Response, and it explains the basic client / server mechanism behind HTTP.

If you see anything I’ve gotten wrong, or you think could be explained better please comment below.  I’ll post updates back to this thread.
