IDG2100 - Full-stack Web Development
Examination arrangement: Oral exam
Grade: Letter grades
Nowadays, being a web developer implies learning the entire process of development from design to actual deployment, ranging from mastering the baseline concepts and cornerstone web technologies to developing a wide set of skills needed in a modern software development, all in all, to become competent and comfortable in all of the widely different environments.
- Architecture of modern vs traditional web applications
- Front-end vs back-end paradigms
- Full-stack development overview (stack of different technologies)
- API paradigms (Request Response APIs and Event-Driven APIs)
- API security: Authentication and Authorisation, OAuth, WebHooks, etc.
- Design APIs and best practices
- Front-end frameworks
- Back-end frameworks
- Modern stack for development (MEAN, MERN or MEVN)
- Developer tools: task runners, bundlers, etc.
The student knows:
- different architectures for modern and traditional web applications
- the pros and cons of rendering contents either on the server-side or on the client-side
- different API paradigms and when those can be used
- authentication and authorisation methods
- different technologies that can be used in a web project and the developing tools that can improve the working flow
The student can:
- design, implement and document APIs
- implement simple authentication techniques
- use package managers, module bundlers and other tools for developers
- carry on the development of a full stack project,
- reflect on the architecture and the more suitable technologies for solving a certain problem
- learn new libraries or frameworks using official documentation
Learning methods and activities
- Laboratory work
- Forum discussions (Blackboard)
4 compulsory assignments (approved/not approved) spread through the semester.
Oral presentations may be required for certain mandatory activities.
The final mandatory activity will be a hackathon, scheduled to take place outside of regular office hours and during the weekend, subject to practical considerations.
All compulsory work requirements must be approved in order to present the final full-stack project.
- Compulsory assignment 1
- Compulsory assignment 2
- Compulsory assignment 3
- Compulsory assignment 4
Further on evaluation
Oral exam: The groups receive a project brief as part of the last compulsory assignment. The group must implement a final full-stack project that solves the problem. The group must then present and defend the project orally. In the oral presentation, the students may also be asked to discuss specific parts of the code or even do some changes. The students will be given and individual letter grade based on their contribution and performance in the oral presentation. The fullstack project must be delivered before the oral presentation (information provided during the course).
In the case of a failing grade, the student or group will receive a similar project for a new oral exam during the following semester.
