Web Technologies

Fall 2017

This course concerns itself with web technologies used for ecommerce. This involves web applications that access a database, especially web apps that are online stores with the usual shopping cart, check out process, etc. The course begins by looking at simple web pages created with Visual Studio 2015 (and ASP.NET 4.5). Although Visual Studio allows coding to be done in either C# or VB, this course uses VB. For the database, we will use SQL Server 2016. During the course, we will learn how to maintain session state information in a web application, how to validate user input and other techniques to reduce the possibility of successful hacking techniques against the website, how to use modern ways to access data from a database (such as the Entity Framework and LINQ), etc. The main goal of the course is to have each student create a fairly complete, but small, online store application.
