Which I used to think was outside > the web. All very confusing. "Web developer" has had a browser-centric meaning for two reasons: * It used to be that's all there was, in the days of static sites. * Server-side development has no "web" core - it's a million different technologies doing whatever someone thought was cool at the time. If you actually want to be able to have a detailed conversation about web technologies, unless you're surrounded by people from the same ecosystem, HTTP _and the things it serves_ are the core conversation, not the tools for producing those things. -- Simon St.Laurent http://simonstl.com/
