Today's websites are increasingly dynamic. Pages are no longer static HTML files but instead generated by scripts and database calls. User interfaces are more seamless, with technologies like Ajax replacing traditional page reloads. This course teaches students how to build dynamic websites with Ajax and with Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP (LAMP), one of today's most popular frameworks. Students learn how to set up domain names with DNS, how to structure pages with XHTML and CSS, how to program in JavaScript and PHP, how to configure Apache and MySQL, how to design and query databases with SQL, how to use Ajax with both XML and JSON, and how to build mashups. The course explores issues of security, scalability, and cross-browser support and also discusses enterprise-level deployments of websites, including third-party hosting, virtualization, colocation in data centers, firewalling, and load-balancing.

Let me start out by saying I'm 18 and began teaching myself programming (Objective-C) when I was around 13-14 to create iPhone apps. I had no idea what direction I needed to go in at the time, so it took me considerably longer to learn than it *should* have (my apps now have over 4.5M downloads). With Dr. Malan's videos I feel like I have covered more in web development in a night than I did with iPhone development in over a year. This guy is truly gifted at teaching.


I wish I had a teacher this good just once in my life.

excellent education

a great oppurtunity for those not fortunate enough to have gotten the chance to sit in class at a great school like harvard
