Web Application Development

This course builds on Web Foundations and provides a comprehensive introduction to the client and server-side development for the web.

In this project-based course, students will work independently to build a web application and progressively apply new knowledge to their application. Students deepen their knowledge of HTML and learn advanced CSS, including how to use CSS variables and modern frameworks for motion and interaction. They learn about accessible web design, and how to create websites and apps that work well on mobile devices, and that support the use of assistive technologies like screen readers.

Students will build the front-end of a web application using HTML, CSS and JavaScript then write a supporting back-end using either a JavaScript or Python framework. In doing so, they will demonstrate knowledge of the request-response structure, database management, and JSON-based APIs. Students will also apply technical communication skills by writing technical specs, drafting architecture diagrams, and documenting APIs.
