Building a Web Application
|Offered this year?||No|
Computer applications involving web-based interfaces interacting with back-end databases are becoming common. These range from e-commerce sites (such as amazon.com) to BOCA, the system through which students view course information online at Brown. In this course we develop a web-based solution for a specific application. In doing so we study issues related to software engineering, software development and the design, structure and implementation of web-based applications. While the course does not involve substantial programming, students' backgrounds should include some programming and web-page development. Limited enrollment; permission of instructor required.
