Talk: How We Got Here - The History of Web Development

The Internet existed before the Web, but the Web redefined the Internet - what started out as a protocol for helping scientists share documents and references has turned into one of the most important forces in the 21st century. But how did we get here?

Join Richard Campbell as he tells the story of the World Wide Web and the web development tools and techniques that made it all possible. From the early versions of HTML where you laid out web pages with tables (GeoCities anyone?) and simple scripting languages to CSS, JavaScript and HTML 5, leading to Single Page Applications, Progressive Web Apps and Web Assembly! We've come a long way, and the story is continuing!
