  • There are lightweight versions of the development software available free from Microsoft that you might want to consider

    Visual Web Developer Express: This includes only the web application parts of the full Visual Studio, so its a smaller install. It can handle everything we need for this course.

    SQL Server 2008 Express: This is included with either version of Visual Studio, and could be all you need for working on your own computer. If you use this rather than the full version of SQL Server, it would be useful to download and install the free SQL Server Management Studio.

In this course, we will explore and construct database backed applications designed for use by large numbers of people via the World Wide Web. Emphasis is placed on designing services that facilitate collaboration. This will involve learning and applying principles of software engineering, planning, and design.  Implementing the web applications will use a variety of technologies and development tools, such as .NET, HTML, XML, SQL, AJAX, and web services.
