Intelligent and Secure Web Development KIT214
Cloud computing forms the backbone of many internet-based applications nowadays. These platforms use advanced operating systems and web service technologies to create and share information. Data stored and exchanged in this cloud-based application follow specific formats. The data exchange can be improved with respect to consumer demands by implementing intelligent algorithms at the server-side programs.
This unit introduces you to principles and practices of developing secure and intelligent cloud-based web applications. It will cover topics and technologies related to Cloud Computing such as virtual machines, Linux, Apache server and web services with scripting languages such as PHP or NodeJS. Students will use a cloud platform to create well-architected deployments of secure and intelligent distributed applications.
Completing this unit will provide you with the opportunity to complete the AWS Cloud Practitioner Essentials training and prepare for the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner (Foundational) certification.
Students need to get permission from the unit coordinator to enrol in the online offering. This online offering is primarily for students enrolled in the Diploma of ICT Professional Practice (including the Undergraduate Certificate in ICT Professional Practice) who might need to complete the unit online. Online students will need to attend online tutorials.
