This course builds on topics from CS 2270. Students learn server-side scripting, database connectivity, and dynamic web-page updating. Web development frameworks are also studied. Prerequisite: CS 2270.
CS 3350 Event-Driven Programming In A Windows Environment (3 credits)
Uses a language suitable for creating event-driven programs while focusing on methodology suitable for developing event handlers in windows-oriented programs. Prerequisite: CS 2322 or equivalent.
CS 3360 Object-Oriented Software Development (3 credits)
Techniques used in object-oriented software development. Key components of these techniques include design patterns, abstraction, encapsulation, modularity, message passing, polymorphism, inheritance, and incremental software development. Students translate a design into software using an object-oriented programming language. Additional topics may include applets, markup languages, multi-threaded programming, and rudimentary network programming. Prerequisite: CS 2322 or equivalent. (May not be offered every year)
