The web turns 25 years old

By March 12, 2014 Uncategorized No Comments

The web was introduced 25 years ago today,.

Just think, before the web there was no online shopping, banking,  search engines,  social networking, web campaigns or online maps. In a short 25 years there have been countless iterations of protocols, browsers, web-servers, frameworks and database systems to enhance Tim Bernard-Lee’s original vision. Despite that evolution we are still making use of those original, fundamental elements:web protocols, browsers, web servers, and HTML.

While our book talks about the technical tools and techniques you need to be a great web developer, the web itself has exceeded the sum of it’s technical parts. The web has changed the very way in which many humans communicate on a daily basis, and has become a powerful tool for both good and evil (like all powerful tools).

Happy Birthday WWW. Here’s to the next 25 years!
