This basic guide to web technology was created for Girl Devleop It New York City's first WTF Web Lecture & Lab:
Tired of techies throwing around so many acronyms it makes your head spin?
Want to build a cool website, but can't decide whether to use RoR, PHP, MySQL, WTF, or BBQ?
Maybe you bridged the gap and heard about a great new tool that makes building websites easy, but keep running into an internet radio site when you try to Google it? (Tricked you! That's Jango, but you're looking for Django.)
We'll gather to go over the basics of a web technology stack (teaching all the acronyms that power a website, for example) and accept questions from the audience about those technologies and any other mysterious terms they may have heard in tech circles.
