What Makes the Web Work?

Presented by Tom Gutnick

The World Wide Web is a modern marvel, bringing infinite information, entertainment, interaction, communication, and shopping (along with much else), with the click of a mouse. But what makes it work? How does a Web browser (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, etc.) fetch information and communicate with the Web? What does a Web server actually do? This presentation will "lift the hood" on the information engine that we all use daily to help us use it better, faster, and safer.

Speaker: Tom Gutnick, the owner of Sunny Banana IT Consulting, has decades of experience in many areas of information technology, including information security, enterprise architecture, Web site design, and software development. His clients have ranged from Fortune 500 corporations to small businesses and nonprofit organizations. He has taught everything from junior high science as a Peace Corps volunteer to high-level computer seminars for corporate audiences. In addition to personal technology classes for Arlington Adult Education, he teaches information systems classes at Northern Virginia Community College. He built his first web site in 1994, before there were any classes or books on the subject.

Sunny Banana IT Consulting helps small businesses and individuals who are struggling with the complexities of technology and don't have their own IT departments. With in-depth knowledge and experience, Sunny Banana helps clients harness the right technology for their business, with patient and jargon-free consultation and training customized to their needs.
