A crash course in the history, theory, and implementation of the internet of today. Learn about TCP/IP, headers, packets, HTTP both 1 and 2, and all the glorious technology that makes web developers tick. Finally take a dive into sockets and peek a bit into hardware, and understand why no matter how fat your vm is why you still run out of socket connections. All the things DARPA folks wish you knew before you wrote that first webapp.

Insanely informative. Absolutely loved it. Great final session of the conference.

This should be a mandatory lesson for any and all people working with the web.

Very cool talk and Elizabeth is a great speaker! Some interesting stories with little fun tidbits of knowledge and very informative too.

Important information for people who work with the internet (all of us!). The flow seemed to wander a little and maybe tighting it up would allow more time for things like sockets.
