HTTP headers

How browsers talk to servers

This is more of an outline than a tutorial. I wanted to give our web team a quick overview of what headers are and what they mean for client-server communication. Mainly, what HTTP headers mean for cookies and for other information that they see when they’re programming on web pages.

It’s unlikely I’ll ever do this tutorial again, so this document is probably more useful as a starting point for giving a tutorial, rather than as a standalone tutorial.
