Web Development - Frameworks

Software development frameworks allow developers to create business solutions faster and can improve the quality, reliability and maintainability of new software. Model-View-Controller (MVC) frameworks have grown immensely in popularity for creating client interfaces for web applications in the IT field. This course will build upon prior web development learning by having students implement and develop secure websites using: Laravel (a PHP framework); Spring (a Java framework); and, Rails (a Ruby framework). Students throughout the course will be required to install and configure each framework locally and use predefined tools to create functional web applications that satisfy business requirements.
