Every time you visit a website, it leaves a kind of trace on your computer.
This completely harmless trace is called a "cookie".
This is a small file used to store information such as your nickname or the language of the site.
There is also a more advanced version of these cookies, called a "session".
But how does this micro-data work, completely invisible to most users ?
When you register on a website, it usually asks you for your first and last name.
You instinctively fill them in, as well as your email address, phone number, and sometimes much more…
But for what purpose do these sites ask you for all this information ?
Why is the collection and use of this personal data increasingly being discussed ?
And even worse, what information belonging to you is being used behind your back, without you even knowing it ?
To communicate with a server, our computers use what is called a communication protocol.
The most widely used of these is HTTP, which is the basis for almost all current communications.
This protocol ensures a good understanding with the server, in order to download its files.
To do this, it is important to respect certain standards, established by this famous communication language.
But how can such a protocol ensure the proper functioning of the World Wide Web ?
At the heart of the Internet, our computers are constantly communicating with each other.
There are many ways to exchange data.
We can send our message directly to the recipient.
Or have it passed through a trusted third party : A server.
This method is called the Client/Server environment.
But how does such an architecture work ?
How is an application created ?
Anyone interested in computers has asked themselves this question at least once in their life.
The operation of an application is an extremely complex process.
So complex that computer scientists have had to invent specific languages to achieve this.
But what are these mysterious programming languages, and why are they so important in the world of computing ?
