ID1354 HT18-1 Applikationer för internet, grundkurs

The course covers concepts, methodologies and technologies for building real world web applications. This includes architecture, tools, graphical user interfaces, markup languages, scripting languages, event-driven programming and databases. The participants will also get hands-on experience in building a production quality web application.

1. Scheduled Activities

There are three kinds of activities, lectures, tutorials and seminars.

  • The lectures introduce new material, and also contain small exercises on what is being introduced.
  • There are a number of tutorials, where you can ask questions to a teacher. These sessions are not mandatory, and no new material is presented.
  • The LAB1 sub course consists of five seminars, where you present your solutions to the assignments.

2. Text Book

This book is not compulsory reading, but can provide good help in the languages (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP) included in the course. The book content is probably available in online guides and tutorials, but to find everything obviously requires some effort.

Note that the grading system used when assessing your solutions is as follows.

  • 0 points - not passed
  • 1 point - passed, no optional tasks accepted
  • 2 points - passed, one optional task accepted
  • 3 points - passed, two optional tasks accepted

Assignment solutions shall be submitted before the seminar, by choosing the desired assignment in the Assignment List.

A seminar lasts two hours, there are four seminar groups for each seminar. You find your seminar group on the People page, and the seminar schedule on the course web (KTH Social).
