20 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: This module assumes no prior knowledge or experience of computer programming. Using Javascript, the module introduces programming concepts, such as general syntax and serial operation, and progresses to more complex operations and modular approaches, such as functions. Students will learn how scripting techniques, specifically Javascript, integrate with a selection of well-known and extensively-used web applications. This selection is expected to change as the technologies also change, however it is expected to include applications such as, for example, Google API, Google mashups, Facebook applications, Flickr API.
