This certificate is designed with the Computer Science major in mind. It is focused less on content and more on code. After completing the ISC Core Courses Web Programmer students take the following three courses:
CS 342 Web Scripting (4 credits)
Prereq: CSCI 330.
For CS majors and non-majors seeking Web programmer certification from the Internet Studies Center. Development of programs and scripts for Web server applications and implementation of dynamic web pages in both Unix and Windows environments. The course includes a study of various scripting languages, and database access through database management systems. Implementations PERL, PhP, Python, Ruby and JSP, their DBM interfaces and the MySQL database management system.
CS 442 Advanced Web Programming in Java (4 credits)
For CS majors and non-majors seeking Web programming certification from the Internet Studies Center. Advanced network, applet, and server applications in Java. GUIs, Web spiders and Web search algorithms, security, remote method invocation and Java Beans.
These courses are offered to CS majors and any non-majors who have completed the prerequisite programming courses. Web programmers should be familiar with all aspects of scripting (both client- and server-side), database specification and interface. Ideally they will get experiences in both Unix and NT server environments.
Web Programming students will then get hands-on experience with an internship or practicum.
