IT 4203 – Advanced Web Development

Fall Semester, 2014
Monday and Wednesday, 6:00 - 7:15 PM in J-210
Brown, B.

Required Text: Chaffer, Jonathan, and Karl Swedberg, Learning jQuery - Fourth Edition, Packt Publishing, 2013. ISBN-13: 9781782163145. (As of July 29, the bookstore had this listed with a different author; if the ISBN is right, it's the right book.)

Recommended Text:Sebesta, Robert W., Programming the World Wide Web, Seventh Edition, Addison Wesley, 2013. ISBN-13: 9780132665810. This is the book used in IT 3203, the prerequisite to this course. You will use it mostly as a reference in this course. If you do not own a copy, an earlier edition, which might be available used, will probably serve as well as the current edition.

In this intensive class, students gain detailed experience with JavaScript, CSS, and Ajax, the tools of Web 2.0. Projects will include server-side programming with PHP. (You will need the programming and Web development skills provided by the prerequisites.)
