Interacting with a server (abbreviated)

  • You interact with a server by making an HTTP request
  • You identify a "resource" on a server with a URL
  • You can send the server some data (the main content of your request)
  • You can also send metadata "headers" (how to handle the request)
  • Requests to servers are associated with a request "method"
  • The server will send back some data
