Data Modeling and Relational Database Design
The goal of this course is to introduce the environment and functionality of a Database Management System. The students will learn how to develop effective database designs using Entity Relationship Diagrams and normalization techniques. They will be given a specification for a database modeled on a real-world system.
Querying and Programming Microsoft SQL Server 2016
The goal of this course is to provide students with the technical skills required to write basic Transact-SQL queries for Microsoft SQL Server™ 2016.
Building Web Applications using PHP and MySQL
This course provides an introduction to the PHP Web scripting language. Students will have basic understanding of the web technology and be able to architect, write, debug, and run complete web applications using PHP and MySQL.
Object-Oriented Programming Using Java
This module is designed to help the student develop the building blocks needed to develop professional Java Applications. Students will learn how to install and configure the JDK and how to install and use the Java documentation (API). Students will then take up the subject of class design in a systematic fashion using a simple subset of the UML notation. Key Object-Oriented concepts will then be covered including interfaces, polymorphism, and Inheritance/super classes.
The Inheritance concepts will be further investigated as students gain an understanding of Exception handling and basic file input/output. The Java Collection classes, including Linked- Lists, Maps, and Hash tables will be reviewed as more complex and functional alternatives to simple arrays. Finally, students will access and use databases in their Java applications.
Building Android Applications using Java
Once the foundational Android knowledge is gained, students will enhance their applications to include the use of Layouts and controls, incorporate audio and video in an application, and take advantage of the various sensors Android devices are equipped with. Students will also learn how to save and load data from local file storage on the device, implement context menus and use the action bar, and add dialogs that give the user information or the opportunity to supply data to the application.
The students will also add in their knowledge of Databases to add data persistence to their applications through the use of the built-in Android SQLite database engine.
The end of the module will have the students putting their newly acquired skills to use in the form of a personal or group project composed of building a fully functioning Android application that could optionally be put up on the Google Play store.
Building Web Applications with ASP.NET Core MVC using Microsoft Visual Studio 2017
This course will teach the fundamentals of the C# Programming for building ASP.NET Core Web Applications. Throughout the class students will learn about core MVC concepts such as Model classes, Views and Controllers. Students will also see how routes are used and how they can be customized, writing custom razor helpers and templates, and learn how to validate data using data annotations. Along with core MVC concepts students will also learn how to query databases using Entity Framework as well as writing LINQ queries. Finally, students will learn how client-side technologies such as jQuery, AJAX and AngularJS can be used to interact with RESTful services created using ASP.NET Core Web API.
Introduction to Business for Web Developers
This course focuses on basic workplace skills. The students will be exploring the general concepts of management and the role IT / technology plays within small and large organizations. The student will learn to apply practical skills, including soft skills, and will have a greater understanding of team dynamics through practical project and case analysis.
