DevOps with Linux, Python & Django2023/2024
- Purpose and learning objectives
This elective aims to give the student practical skills in developing modern web applications.Knowledge
The course weighs back-end development at 75% and web infrastructure at 25%.
The student will gain knowledge about some of the most important problem areas in back-end web development:Skills
• the underlying design principles of the Internet and the web design and development of robust protocols and APIs with REST
• design and development of hypermedia-driven web applications
• how back-end components like databases, task queues, caches, and objects storage can strategically be applied
• design accountable solutions
• understanding the HTTP protocol
The student will understand and be able to reflect on questions like:
• challenges and solutions in scaling web applications
• how solutions can be designed around back-end components
• how to reduce the complexity of web development projects
The student will gain skills to:Competences
• develop robust and scalable web applications using Python and Django
• develop RESTful APIs
• develop hypermedia-driven web applications
• practically apply back-end components in development projects
• deploy applications on the Internet
• develop accountable solutions
The student will learn to:
• develop advanced web applications that are robust and scalable using back-end components
• deploy and maintain web applications on the Internet
• develop and implement solutions according to the Internet design principles
- Type of instruction
The course is based on Problem-Based Learning. The students are introduced to the Python programming language and the Django web development framework through the development of a simple application as class collaboration. The students must then apply their knowledge in developing a larger application project, where the student must also acquire new knowledge on their own to complete the development. The teacher will act as a supervisor in the development project, so the students are not left on their own.
