Before the course deep dives into HTTP, this lesson will introduce you to what HTTP is and give you a general introduction the component parts that make up both HTTP requests and responses such as URIs, Methods, Payloads and Status codes.

This lesson includes snippets of the HTML lesson from The Building Blocks of the Internet. If you need to brush up on learning the fundamental technologies that make up websites and web pages, we recommend taking The Building Blocks of the Internet course before this one.
