Randall Waldrop

Author Randall Waldropabout this book: "The Web Story: Technologies of the Cloud" presents the history, evolution, and basics of the technical details of the main technologies of the "World Wide Web" and the so-called "Cloud". It is a great starting point for anyone wishing to learn about these technologies. Also it contains lots of references and links to standards, tutorials, and additional information on the web for those wishing to learn more.

I have been a Software Developer and Architect for over 45 years, with experience in website development for over 20 years. I have seen firsthand the evolution over many years that has led up to the primarily open-source Web as we know it today. In the book there are some interesting nuggets of little known information, such as how JavaScript "saved" the Web from being overtaken by proprietary technologies such as Microsoft's .NET (ActiveX) project. Also the final chapter contains some interesting insights on what may come in the near future as the evolution of these technologies continues.
