The inside of a website

The inside of a website

Usually one of the first things you learn when you start programming is “Hello World”. “Hello World” is simply a small application that outputs the words “Hello World” onscreen. 

The masochists at wrote the famous “Hello World” application in 300 different programming languages! 

It is quite an accomplishment and you have to wonder where they got the documentation to do the code in obscure languages such as Fjölnir and MUF.

I suppose I can Google it, but there is no way that I am Googling MUF on my work PC. Stupid joke out of the way, let’s continue. 

Relevant to this blog would be the three languages HTML, PHP, SQL and possibly Java Script. 

When somebody types in their web browser their web browser sends a request to the Blogspot server for the website called Digital Liquor. 
How a web request flows through the Internet.

The Blogspot server will then use the SQL language to query their database to get the content of my site. They will then use PHP to build the website and send it back to the web browser that will then use HTML to display the website on your computer. Java Script will then handle your interactions with the page such as clicking on buttons. 

There! Easy! Anybody can do it. 

For the full list of programming languages go the My CPlus article.
