The course focuses on the development of dynamic web applications using open source technology Apache - MySQL - PHP. The course first introduces students to the HTTP communication and current technology of applications running in the Internet environment, then focuses on the basic techniques (kernel commands, generating output, databases handling, etc.) and advanced techniques (sessions and cookies handling, user authentication, etc.) for writing code of applications in a server scripting language PHP, of which data is stored and retrieved dynamically to/from MySQL database server. The course also helps students to acquire the necessary knowledge to implement applications in the Apache web server, to program selected functions in the client browser using JavaScript scripting language and also to optimize web applications for web search engines (SEO).

The 5-hour course starts with two-hour lecture followed by a three-hour thematic exercises in a computer lab where students solve tasks together and gradually step by step create sample web application like web blog. Each student works on his own computer at the same time regularly alternates with with other students at the teacher's computer and actively participates in the preparation of the specification in discussion with others. In the exercises, students learn to work with off-line and on-line resources and to analyse case studies and program codes as well.

Studenti jsou povinni absolvovat souhrnný test, který ověřuje znalosti z látky probírané za celý semestr a trvá 75 minut. K vypracování testu nelze využít žádných písemných či elektronických materiálů nebo pomůcek.

Studenti jsou povinni vypracovat samostatný projekt na vybrané téma.

Klasifikovaný zápočet je udělován na základě bodového hodnocením souhrnného testu a samostatného projektu a obdrží ho ti studenti, kteří získají z každé povinnosti alespoň 50 z maximálních 100 bodů. Klasifikovaný zápočet je dán aritmetickým průměrem bodů získaných z obou povinností.
