While the World Wide Web itself remains of enormous importance both from a technological and a societal perspective, subsequent disruptive technologies such as mobile apps and platform independent software applications are also based substantially on same underlying concepts and techniques. This evolution means that software developers as well as other specialists need thorough knowledge and skills of the three main client-side technologies: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. These may be applied to a wide range of areas, including document publishing, website design, user interface development, and web applications. The course caters for stand-alone study of web technology, and also prepares students for further investigation in subsequent advanced web technology programming courses.

This course conveys the essential skills and knowledge required to create and maintain high quality web documents. The course will cover document design and preparation, as well as the more technical issues of web-publishing such as client-side scripting and input validation. Program material may only be available via the web. Practical classes will be provided for internal students. While the course will use Javascript as the programming language, prior experience with it is not required. However, both a general understanding of and basic experience with programming in a high level language is essential. Limited experience with using Linux/Unix is also recommended.
