The Bootup Open Forum
initiative provides the technical concepts and insights that are crucial for inventing opportunity and driving innovation. Through partnerships with the technical community, BOFs are lead by subject matter experts, and designed to deliver vital information in a succinct one-hour format.
Held in conjunction with the New York PHP User Community
and lead by Managing Member Hans Zaunere, BOF #1: Fundamentals of the Web
will introduce the need-to-know concepts of today's world wide web.
- The Cast and Key Concepts - Browsers, servers, protocols, and computer code
- The Server Side - Web servers, hosting, and programming languages
- HTTP - What actually happens when you view a web page?
- The Database - Dynamic vs. static web pages
- Case study of viewing a web page
- What's Ajax and where does it fit?
- Web Services - XML, RSS, APIs, and the programmable web
While many may be familiar with these concepts in general, a comprehensive understanding is vital for anyone involved in technology today. Attendees will leave with the foundation and latest vernacular that's required to work with and leverage anything on the web.
These are interactive events, and attendees are encouraged to ask relevant questions and utilize their own laptop during the session. Laptops, however, are not required.
BOFs are free and open to the public, however seats are limited - RSVP is required.
Special thanks to Hive at 55
for providing a great space with free wireless internet access.
As part of our ongoing partnership with Girls in Tech NYC
, we are also pleased to be a part of the GiT Tech to Educate
initiative starting April 6th, providing the technology education that matters most to women.
Future BOFs will include specialized and advanced topics, and we are encouraging community leaders and subject matter experts to contact us
to lead their own BOF - learn more
