Pile of books

What is a web stack?

A web stack is like a pile of books. The top element is the application with which the user can interact, while the bottom element is the base: the operating system. The other elements in between are the technology necessary for both the application and the operating system to communicate with each other. They all form a team with a common goal: to provide everything the application may need to work.
