Web Application Design
- The course is a substitute for:
- Web Application Design (BIE-TWA)
- Department of Software Engineering
Students are able to design and implement a complete web application (both the client side and the server side). PHP is the most popular programming language for writing dynamic web applications, and is used as the primary programming language of this module. Students learn to design and implement, for instance, an e-shop, a gallery, a shared calendar, and so on. Tools for quick and secure application development are introduced.
Knowledge in the scope of the introductory „Web and Multimedia“ module.
