THIS IS THE HOME PAGE FOR THE NOTES AS THEY WERE WHEN THEY WERE LAST UP TO MAY 2011. I AM LEAVING THEM HERE FOR BACKGROUND READING. THE NEW VERSION OF THE CONTENTS PAGE FOR THIS COURSE WILL EVENTUALLY BE FOUND HERE.
Welcome to the on-line lecture pages for EG-259 Web Applications Technology. The content of each lecture is a DokuWiki Wiki page which can be viewed, printed as a portable handout [and edited!]. The same materials can also be presented as a slide show (this feature uses the s5 plugin). The review problems and homework problems for each lecture are stored on the Blackboard site. The notes for a week's lectures will normally be available on the preceding Friday. I strongly recommend that you print a copy of the pages and bring it to the lecture with you so that you can add your own additional notes.
If you are enrolled on the module, you can discuss the course at the Oremi community site to which you will have been registered.
Most of these are expected to be done as Self Directed Learning activities outside the formal contact hours.
The fundamentals of Web technology are the Internet networking protocols (TCP/IP), the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI), the HTTP protocol, the markup language XHTML and the style definition language CSS. Although it will probably be revision, we still need to go over these topics in order to lay a good foundation for the client- and server-side programming issues that will come later.
I am retaining the original lecture notes as an historical record, but the topics to be covered changed in 2012.
