The World Wide Web was proposed originally as a collection of static documents inter-connected by hyperlinks. Today, the web has grown into a rich platform, built on a variety of protocols, standards, and programming languages, that aims to replace many of the services traditionally provided by a desktop operating system. This course will study core technologies, concepts, and techniques behind the creation of modern web-based systems and applications. This course satisfies the Integrative Experience requirement for BS/BA CS majors.
