Chapter 11. IronPython and ASP.NET > Introducing ASP.NET

11.1. Introducing ASP.NET

When writing web applications, the user interface isn’t defined in terms of Windows Forms controls, but instead is displayed by the web browser. This means that your interface needs to be represented to the browser as HTML and JavaScript.

Clients and servers

Web applications are networked applications—they’re implemented as a conversation between two computers. When we talk about events that occur in the application, it’s important to have a clear understanding of where the events happen. Generally, the computer running the web browser that displays the application user interface is called the client, and events that happen on that computer are client-side events. The computer that lives at the browser’s destination URL is called the server, and things that happen on the server are said to be server-side.
