I was just about to joke about wanting to find someone outside of CERN with 20+ years of web app experience, but it looks like we’re getting close to it being an accurate number (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP#History). Now I’m feeling a latecomer - I didn’t start doing web dev until '96 :frowning:

Anyone here actually doing any commercial dev using http pre '94 (pre Netscape)?

Best Wishes,

Peter

December '94 was when I first went on line, but I didn't do any actual Web creation until '96.

Yes. And thank you for making me feel old :slight_smile:

I can still see the office where a colleague was showing how Netscape 0.9b was able to do transparent gifs… and I remember that being a major “oh wow” moment coming from lynx/mosaic…

The University of Victoria (Fine Arts Faculty) had a donation from Sun
of their workstations back in 1992-3 and I was hired as a junior
admin. Around 1993-4, part of my job was creating web pages on SunOS
with HoTMetaL as an html editor and using NCSA Mosaic as the browser
and the CERN httpd daemon. As cool as that was, I was totally blown
away by playing netrek on the server at Carnegie Mellon University
with people all over the continent.

In retrospect, it was pretty cool to have stumbled upon the early web
as a naive young student. Since them, the changes and the speed of
change is awe inspiring.

Wow - I'm in awe! I came across the web in '94 but didn't get commercial clients for building web apps until '96. I didn't think that was horrible, but clearly I'm a short timer at this web application development stuff with only 15 years experience :slight_smile:

Best Wishes,
