252-0374-00L Web Engineering
|Semester||Spring Semester 2015|
|Periodicity||yearly recurring course|
|Language of instruction||English|
|Abstract||The course teaches students about the basic principles of web engineering by examining the various technologies used in modern web sites in detail together with the step-by-step processes used to develop state-of-the art web sites.|
|Objective||The goals of the course are that students should be able to:|
- systematically develop state-of-the-art web sites using a range of technologies, platforms and frameworks in common use
- understand the role of different technologies and how they are combined in practice
- analyse requirements and select appropriate technologies, platforms and frameworks
In the second half of the course, we will look at how various platforms and frameworks are used to support web site development. We will start by examining the model behind modern content management platforms such as WordPress and showing how web sites with dynamic content can be systematically developed using these platforms. This will be followed by looking at the more traditional programming approaches by first introducing the Java web technology stack and then a modern web application framework. Finally, we will present model-driven approaches to web engineering.
The material covered in lectures will be supported by a series of practical exercises that will take the students through the development processes.
