(Command Line Interface) Such an interface is often
used in command prompts and this type of interface uses Input
and Output to run code in realtime as you type commands.
It is often used to facilitate communications between you
and your computer system, but can also be used to create
secure shells to connect to networks directly.
(Cascading Style Sheet) Developed by Håkon Wium Lie, a language
he used to implement in order to distinguish a documents purpose.
He created the language to largely be implemented on any markup
language not specifically HTML. Primarily used for the styling
of web documents to improve readability and appeal to users.
(File Transfer Protocol) A protocol used for simple file
transferring between a client and server. The connection normally
happens across a port number (typically 21). The port is
typically associated with an IP Address and type of protocol.
(Graphical User Interface) Used as an alternative to PTUIs
(Plain Text User Interfaces), a GUI is an interface that allows
the client to interact and give input in ways of interaction with
(Human Computer Interaction) It is a subject that many
computer scientists focus on today. Specifically talks about the
interaction between people and computers. Early in history only
scientists and data analysts needed to use computers but as the
personal computer got developed they had to account for the
average person and had to implement design techniques that would
make computers more usable for the public.
(HyperText Markup Language) Standard Markup Language for creating
websites. Tim Berners-Lee created it strongly after the widely
accepted markup language at the time SGML. The main difference was
the anchor element ‘a’ which Lee implemented for his use of
connectivity and the creation of his ‘web’.
(HyperText Transfer Protocol) The protocol specifically used to
exchange and transfer hypertext. This is the specific protocol
created my Tim Berners-Lee to implement the idea of connectivity
that he wanted. In the end they were able to get a hypertext
document by initiating the command “GET” in a terminal. An
application layer protocol that is designed within the Internet
A concept developed by Tim Berners-Lee which would allow
for fluid media data sharing. It is the idea of data linkage which
allows images and text to be displayed when we access certain
URLs often manifested using HTML (Hypertext Markup Language).
The connection of various computer networks implementing
It is a type of media that consists of other medias. A
website is often described as multimedia as it can contain: gifs
, images, videos, text, and even music.
(Secure Shell) A protocol that allows you to operate on your
network over an unsecure network. This is often used for remote
connecting to servers. Normal use includes a command line interface
where you type the command “ssh” and then your ssh username and
wait to be prompt for password.
A Transmission Control Protocol created for the interfacing and
communication of terminal devices. Telnet is historically used
similarly to SSH, but it lacks the security that SSH provides.
World Wide Web:
The actual web of interlinkage produced by various URLs
and Hypertext sources linked together. The internet is used to
access websites across the web using the URLs. (Uniform Resource
