1. Objectives and competences

  • The primary objective of this course is to introduce students a Web as a distributed system and the use of online technologies on the client and server-side. The acquired knowledge will enable students to develop their own webpages, websites and web applications.
  • The theoretical and practical work helps them to develop skills for understanding and solving creative professional challenges in computer and information science and for independent work in solving technical problems and to apply the acquired practical skills and knowledge of software technologies for successful professional work.

2. Content

  • Introduction – web technologies
  • Internet (computer, network)
  • Web (WWW) – distributed document-based system
  • Web architecture (client-server model, communication, naming, ...)
  • Standards and protocols
