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.
After completing the course, the students will have an overview of the different architectures for modern and traditional web applications. They will understand the pros and cons of rendering contents either on the server-side or on the client-side. They will know different API paradigms and when those can be used. They will also have learned different authentication and authorisation methods. Finally, they will have a broad overview of the different technologies that can be used in a web project and the developing tools that can improve the working flow.
- Conceptualisation, implementation and documentation of APIs
- MEAN, MERN or MEVN
- Npm, webpack or gulp
General Competence Goals
At the end of the course, students will be able to carry on the development of a full stack project, reflecting on the architecture and the more suitable technologies for solving a certain problem. They will be well versed in modern web development tools and able to properly document their projects.
Learning methods and activities
- Laboratory work
- Forum discussions (Blackboard)
4 compulsory assignments (approved/not approved) spread through the semester.
All compulsory work requirements must be approved in order to submit the final full-stack project.
- Compulsory assignment 1
- Compulsory assignment 2
- Compulsory assignment 3
- Compulsory assignment 4
Further on evaluation
Assessment: the group delivers a final full-stack project together with a project report. The whole delivery is packaged as a zip file and delivered digitally. The project will be given a grade from A to F. Groups that gets a failing grade on the project delivery can deliver an improved project for a new grading during the following semester.
Compulsory activities from previous semester may be approved by the department.
