DevOps Engineers and Web Application Developers

This introductory course explains the fundamentals of web application architecture for developers and DevOps. Learn how the HTTP request/response cycle works, web authentication, and caching for implementation troubleshooting, and performance testing.

Learn how full stack applications send data between servers, and REST API architecture components enable client/server communications. The topics in this course are prerequisite for web application troubleshooting and performance analysis.

 It is essential that developers know how DNS resolution works on the internet and SSL/TLS encrypts in-transit data across the internet. HTTP optimization techniques such as preconnect and prefetch are also covered for faster application response time. WebTransport is the newest real-time protocol that leverages all the performance advantages of HTTP/3 for real-time applications.
