Students will learn new trends and technologies on the Web including theoretical foundations. Students will gain an overview about Web applications architectures, concepts and technologies about programmable Web (REST Architectures, Mashups), basic mechanisms for knowledge representation on the Web (microformats, meta-data, ontologies, open linked data, etc.), mechanisms about collective intelligence (collaborative filtering, predictions of users' behaviours), social networks, and security.


Software architectures and Web technologies (HTTP, HTML, URI, XML), programming skills (Java, JavaScript), computer networks, statistics, graph theory, and basic algorithms.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Web 1.0: basic concepts and technologies URI, HTTP, HTML.

2. Web 2.0: read/write web, programmable web, democratized web, decentralized web, real-time web.

3. REST Architecture, RESTful services.

4. RESTful design patterns for Web API, Mashups.

5. Meta-data, knowledge representation, semantics.

6. Content annotation, microformats, open link data.

7. User interface elements, Rich User Experience.

8. Collective intelligence, collaborative filtering methods.

9. Decision trees, users' activities analysis.

10. Crowdsourcing principles and technologies, social networks, folksonomies.

11. Protocols for real-time Web.

12. Security mechanisms (OAuth, OpenID).

13. Security threats (phishing, X-site scripting, clickjacking), precautions.

Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Basic Web application design (functions, data, user interface).

2. Web API design.

3. User interface design.

4. Web application semantics and meta-data.

5. Collective intelligence mechanisms implementation.

6. Application security, security verification.

Study Objective:

Web 2.0 defines new models for information sharing, interoperability and creation based on collaborative approaches. Web 2.0 defines new models for human-computer interactions and new ways how information on the Web can be used and processed in new value-added applications. The module will provide a fundamental basis for everyone who wants to design and implement modern Web applications based on new paradigms and state-of-the-art Web technologies.
