Welcome to CS132

CS132, 'Creating Modern Web Applications', is a spring semester course within the Brown CS department. The course has two tracks, one intended for CS concentrators, and one intended for non-Concentrators with previous design experience. It takes a holistic look at the process of developing web and mobile applications and aims to bring the students to a point of mastery of many of the most used web technologies, and development practices. The course includes a semester long group final project in which the students will be working with external companies, non-profits, and other organizations.

Final Projects

The materials covered in CS132 culminates in a final project, where students work in groups to implement a web application for a client. (We are currently looking for suitable projects for this course! For further information see our submissions page.) Examples of previous projects include:

CS132 will allow a number of student projects. A successful student project proposal is:

If your proposal is accepted you will serve as a mentor for your project. This means you'll be responsbile for your project and the rest of your team. Other students will be able to select your project like any other and we will assign you an appropriate project team.

Student project proposals should be sent to cs132headtas@cs.brown.edu as early as possible and no later than the second class. Project proposals should include a paragraph pitching your project to students.
