A Short History of the Web

One of the informative and interesting talks from last week’s Front Conference in Zurich was by Martin Splitt, where he not only talked entertainingly about the history of the web, but also – briefly – about the invention of jam.


The web has come a long way since its inception. We’ve seen many things change and some others staying the same. Let’s take a step back and look at how we built the web, what worked well and what didn’t go so well. We will explore what we should keep in mind when building the web’s future, based on what we have built so far.

Martin is a developer advocate on the Webmaster Trends Analyst team at Google Switzerland.

In this role, he helps developers and content creators to build great content on the web. He is involved with the W3C as well as the global web and JavaScript developer community, working to keep the web open.
