ITC294 Web Programming in the Cloud (8)

This subject provides students with an in-depth study of the issues surrounding the development of Web applications and programming in a public Cloud environment. It will examine the basic Cloud infrastructure foundations and development requirements for developing Web applications. Cloud native application design will be examined in detail together with the requirements for migration of monolithic applications. The role of the Cloud Edge will be considered for use with Cloud native programming and development. The subject will provide students with design and development experience in Web programming and will include practical sections where students will build applications that will attempt to solve business problems using a public Cloud.
