Web Development & Web-based Frameworks
level of course unit
Learning outcomes of course unit
Students acquire the basic knowledge to develop, test and maintain complex client-side web applications.
The graduates are able to:
- to apply basic concepts of client-side web development,
- to recognize, understand and apply basic design patterns in software architectures,
- implement complex client-side web applications using suitable technologies and frameworks and
-evaluate common technologies and frameworks for the implementation of web applications (web technologies).
prerequisites and co-requisites
Courses of the previous semester successfully completed
This course teaches the development process of a client-side web application with consideration of the special characteristics of this development environment. Essential programming concepts of modern web development are explained theoretically and then applied (e.g. DOM API, Web Components, Progressive Web Apps) with the aid of suitable development environments and tools.
Furthermore, the concepts and the practical application of client-side web frameworks, which are widely used in current practice, are taught. In addition, typical tasks implemented with such frameworks will be presented and discussed, such as asynchronous communication with server-side backends. In addition to these practice-oriented areas, various frequently encountered architecture patterns (e.g. MVC, Inversion of Control) are presented and their use in the frameworks under consideration is demonstrated.
