Lesson 1: HTTP’s Request Response Cycle
Learn about HTTP's request and response cycle. We'll look at the pieces that make up both requests and responses, who originates these requests, and how these messages relate to each other.
Lesson 2: HTTP/1
Find out how HTTP/1 is used in practice by mapping the requests types from lesson 1 into specific HTTP verbs and the response types into response codes & headers.
Lesson 3: HTTPS
Discover what the "S" in HTTPS is all about. We'll look at TLS (the successor to SSL), cryptography, Certificate Authorities, and HTTP Mixed Content issues.
Lesson 4: HTTP/2
Look at the areas where HTTP/2 improves on and extends HTTP/1. We'll also look at different optimizations that were created to handle limitations with HTTP/1 but are now anti-patterns in HTTP/2.
Lesson 5: Security
Security is the undercurrent throughout this course, but it's so important it also needs its own lesson. We'll look at and resolve common security problems like CORS, CSRF, XSS, and more!
