Anatomy of a Page Request

You've probably done it a thousand times and it usually takes a couple of seconds, but what actually happens when you visit a Drupal 8 site?

Whether your intention is to build, modify or theme one, This session will give you a better understanding of how your content makes it from browser to server and back.

This session gives you a glimpse behind the curtain and explains the chain of events that are set off when you initiate a page request.
Each step in the process is described in plain language:

How does your request find its way from the browser to the server?
How does Drupal 8 return your page as an HTML file?
What additional files get passed to your browser?
How does your browser render a page?

After all, clarity is a wonderful thing!
