How Browsers Get Data by Chandler Prall

As web developers it is important to understand what our browsers do behind the scenes to communicate with and get data from servers. What does devtools mean by "DNS lookup", "initial connection", or "Waiting (TTFB)", and why is this important to me? This is a deep dive into internet connections and the dangerous journey all data takes as it moves to and from users, from the network layer in your operating system all the way to the browser's enforcement of Cross Origin Resource Security (CORS, aka the devil).

How to (and how to not) make offline React apps, publish an open source library, deal with fleeting viral fame, cope with trolls, translate into multiple languages, and promote your work. We’ll walk through a weird project I made and what it taught me.
