The course deals with designing and implementing WWW sites and interactive services on the Web.
Guest lecturers from academia and industry cover relevant aspects, such as various Web service implementation techniques, usability, web service life span, graphic design, usability, and information security.
The project work done in groups consists of designing and implementing a WWW service and documenting the development process.
