Credits: 3
Lecture Hours: 3
Lab Hours: 0
Practicum Hours: 0
Work Experience: 0
Course Type: Voc/Tech
This course introduces the students to a current selection of application-programming languages referred to as “scripting languages.” These languages are used to create small self-contained programs that are used to add unique functions and special handling capabilities to website applications. The students will learn the basic concepts and applications of these languages and how they can be included within a website.
Prerequisite: CIS 204   or BCA 113
