Web site lesson...
Let's make short conversation about web-site. - What is "web-site" mean?
A few days later Alice phoned Bob.
A: - Good morning, Bob, it is Alice from It-company. - Can you come tomorrow for a little conversation?
B: - Of course, I will be tomorrow.
At the next day Bob comes to the office. He opened Alice's door, smiled to her and said:
B: - Hello, may I come in?
A: - Hello Bob, of course, come in and sit down where you like.
Bob sat on a free chair in front of Alice. Except Alice, in the office was another guy.
A: - Let me introduce you each other, this is Bob and this is Timothy, you are both want to work in our company and I need to know more about your knowledge.
Guy's not so happily look at each other.
B: - Hi, Tim.
T: - Hi, Bob, nice to meet.
A: - So, let start our conversation. I want to ask you what you can say about web-site? What do you know about it? What is usually web-site build for? How to make it? and other things... What you can answer Tim?
T: - Are we talking about some special web site or just common any web-sites?
A: - Any site, just common things.
T: - Ok, I can say Web sites is a set of related web pages typically served from a web domain. A website is hosted on at web server, accessible via a network such as the Internet. There are too many different kinds of website. There are many sites such as social network, news sites, gambling sites, informational sites, business portal sites, e-commerce sites and other.
A: - What else Bob?
B: - M-m, as Tom says any sites used Internet, it is computer networks that use the Internet protocol to link billions of devices worldwide. Each website has its own unique web address which can be reached through an internet connection.
A: - Which words you can associate with website, Tim?
T: - When we talking about web site we can also say about such things as URL, HTTP, HTML and CSS, wide meaning in frond-end and back-end development. More about this: URL or Uniform Resource Locator - is the unique address for a file that is accessible on the Internet. HTTP or Hypertext Transfer Protocol is the set of rules for transferring files, text, graphic images, sound, video, and other multimedia files on the World Wide Web.
Alice noted something in her notebook.
A: - Bob, How would you explain the difference between front-end and back-end web development to a 5-year-old?
B: - Pretend a website is a car. There are a lot of things inside of a car that help it run – make it speed up, slow down, even keep on the lights. All of these things you can't really see – but are really important – that's the back-end.
But then there are items that you directly use in the car to make it go: your gas and brake pedals, the steering wheel. And there are also a lot of things on that car that make it fun to drive and cool to look at: a racing stripe, a leather interior. All the stuff you can directly touch, see or hear. That's the front end.
A: - Tim, What is front-end development?
They talked for some time and when the conversatoin has been completed Alice thanked the boys.
Bob thought "Tim is quite smart guy, and what about Alice? Is this pretty girl also has strong knowledge?"
