This course is an elementary introduction to the Internet and the World Wide Web. Students will learn the client-server model, Internet protocols, domain names and URLs, websites and Web hosting. They will also learn HTML, CSS, JavaScript and XML. Students will program both in client and server-side environments and develop data-driven Web applications. They will also learn to deploy applications on web hosting servers.

Assignments and Labs Policy

Policy for Late/Re-submission: unless with my prior consent, will not be allowed. I can give you one unconditional late submission/resubmission for up to 7 days from the original due date, but only once. Outside of this, here is a list of NOT-GONNA-WORK excuses:

  1. I have to work / I forgot;
  2. I have too many courses;
  3. I am travelling;
  4. I am not happy with my grade;
  5. My mum doesn’t want me to study.

Policy for Plagiarism in Labs: do not share your code with others. Do not let others copy or mimic your code. You may take inspiration, but any work you do must be original. Failure to comply will result in plagiarism charges.

Cheating and Plagiarism Policy

I expect all students to uphold the principle of academic honesty. Cheating and plagiarism (presenting another person’s words or ideas as one’s own) are not acceptable behaviour at anywhere. Depending on the severity of the offence such acts can result in a grade of zero on the test or assignment, a failing grade (F) in the course, or expulsion. In all cases, the circumstances and the penalty are recorded in the student’s file.
