Web technologies and the development of web applications are an integral part of the way contemporary applications are built. This unit is a part of the foundation units in the postgraduate Information Technology courses at Deakin, in which students will learn to develop web applications using latest technologies. Learning experiences in this unit will help students understand how web applications work and will give students the opportunity to conceptualise and implement web related solutions for a range of scenarios. The solutions student develop in this unit will take into account client and server side programming requirements and appropriate techniques. Students will build on learning from the associated programming and database units by learning how to use client and server side programming language to create small data driven web applications.
