  • Description

    The first half of the course will introduce the various technologies used in state-of-the-art websites together with the widespread interface-driven development process. From the beginning, we will cater for access from multiple devices such as mobile phones and tablets as well as desktop browsers and show how technologies such as HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript can be used to support rich forms of interaction. The concepts behind modern content management platforms such as WordPress will be introduced and students will gain practical experience of working with such a platform in terms of extending its functionality as well as developing websites.
    The second half of the course will introduce various programming frameworks for website development and students will gain experience of working with various JavaScript frameworks, including ones developed to support novel forms of interaction and applications that run across two or more devices. The final lectures will examine user experience issues and future trends.
    The material covered in lectures will be supported by a series of practical exercises.


    The grade is determined by course work (25%) and final exam (75%).
