Development of Server-side Solutions 6 credits

Course Contents

The course introduces solutions on the server side, which provide digital products with structured information. Server-side solutions are created taking into account the principles of service design. The course starts with basics of programming in Python and explains web frameworks for creation of server-side applications such as Flask. The client-server model is considered then as well as creation of web services with REST API. Request routing, templates for web pages and serialization with JSON are explained next. Storing of data in a database on the server is detailed then. The second part of course continues the subject of information architecture and semantic technologies. This part deals with enhancing web applications with semantic technologies and linked data: embedding semantic tags in HTML, finding and consuming open data as well as publishing own datasets.
