“What is the Internet?” class notes

For the last couple of months, I have been teaching a class at General Assembly, “What is the Internet?”, together with Charlie Robbins of Nodejitsu. It is an 8-lecture series about Internet architecture, principles, history and security. It has been a really fun experience to rehash my knowledge of the space and convert it to concepts that are easily understood by those without a Computer Science degree.
Here are my lecture notes (Charlie taught the odd-numbered lectures):

Lecture 2: “Basic Principles” (.key) “Basic Principles” (.pdf)

Lecture 4: “World Wide Web” (.key) “World Wide Web” (.pdf)

Lecture 6: “Internet Security” (.key) “Internet Security” (.pdf)
