I'm a last century's analyst/programmer/developer/etc.
I use the web, I work in an environment connected to everything. I can reach information from anywhere in the world.
But all this is in a black box for me.
Outside of my black box are my programming languages, my operating systems, my compilers, my local servers and nothing much else.
INSIDE my black box are the apaches, the eclipses, the browsers, the DLLs, the citrixes, the VPNs, and all the myriad of new terms that appear every day.
Is there any publication, article, speech or something that explains those things from the top in a very easy way for old dummies like me? Like having an aerial view of something and you see, first, how the global structure is, and then step by step, you can comprehend the different sections of the whole.
I can't offer any material reward for the information, only my deepest thanks.
And by the way, deeper apologies if I'm confusing WWW with only a complex IT environment.
