Web Technology is a course about several Internet-related technologies. It teaches the basic workings of the web.
Why the basic workings? Because understanding them enables students to come up with alternative strategies to solve web-problems and achieve new web-goals. Students will be encouraged to find their own solutions, e.g. come up with alternative and new web-protocols.
internetworking – protocol stacks – IP, TCP, UDP and HTTP protocols – Open Sound Control (OSC) protocol – semantic web – streaming media – MP3 encoding – peer-to-peer file sharing – BitTorrent protocol – TOR Onion Routing – “Is there a future for the world-wide web?”
This course specifically does not cover web-design issues, and does not teach you HTML (those skills are assumed). It is about how the Internet works, how the World Wide Web functions and what you could add to this.
Introduction to various basic internet and web technologies and enabling design of alternative technologies/solutions
