Today, the web isn't what you remember.
It used to be stateless. Every call to your site began with a detective story of figuring out who the user was and hydrating their "state" so you could continue useful work. The web didn't remember state.
It used to be based on request and response. Code was delivered to the browser like a postman dropping off a package and speeding away. You had to call back in to get updates. Sure, we have AJAX to poll for updates these days, but those are just endless calls for new packages behind the scenes. The web wasn't realtime.
Start building extensible and powerful web applications after seeing how the way the web works is changing for good.
