Web Programming


Websites are an indivisible part of our daily lives. Using web services and web pages, we are now able to do all the tasks, which were once fulfilled by the clerks of various companies and governmental organizations. For example, we need no additional help to buy a plane ticket online, book a hotel room or execute other important operations.

In GeoLab we teach the students how to create and organize dynamic websites. A dynamic website is saved on a web server in a form of scripts, templates and other data. Such website is located on a server as separate components. Using these separate components the server builds up the website for each new user, who is able to access it with his/her personal browser. In most cases, news portals serve as a good example of dynamic websites

At GeoLab web programming includes three directions: web programming PHP, web programming .NET and Front-End (HTML). The vast majority of news portals and company websites are built using PHP, while .NET is used to create multifunctional, corporate websites. The specialists who use these programming languages set up a web page’s BACK or it’s server side. Both courses are professional and during the last month the students work on their own projects, with the help of their lecturers. The third course in web programming - Front-End (HTML) is a basic course that lasts two months. During the program the students learn how to set up a web page’s FRONT (the client-side, which is viewed by users). Accordingly, web developers are divided into two groups: Back-End developers, who build server sides and Front-End developers, who work on websites’ visual sides.
