This unit will introduce you to advanced principles and practice of developing secure web deployments. It will focus on the implementation strategies and technology for deploying scalable web applications. Web applications nowadays need to provide customised experiences to the users to provide a consistent use experience and capabilities. The interface must retain user attentions as much as possible. Web pages should be designed carefully, and the interface may change dynamically according to user demands or trends.
You will use a cloud platform to create your own deployments of secure distributed web applications, load balancing and server configurations. The web applications will be designed with suitable Web Design Architecture in PHP or NodeJS and suitable database management, e.g., MySQL.
