I started today with CMPT 470 – Web based Information Systems at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby. The course will attempt to focus on all the web technologies popular today like XHTML, CSS, XML, databases, Ruby on rails, client-side/server-side scripting, etc and will entail going through a full project life-cycle involving internal group dynamics, business analysis, and final product delivery. Shareoint/WSS will be used for collaboration. I’m excited about this course because it will bring together everything that I have learned from the Web-Programming Associate Certificate course that I took at BCIT. The big project for the semester will be real-life driven with an attempt at presenting our finished product at an Open House at SFU sometime during the summer.
