This course comprises 14 lessons on server-side scripting. Each lesson includes a combination of Wikipedia and Internet-based readings, YouTube videos, and hands-on, interactive learning activities. Examples are provided using a variety of server-side scripting languages.
Most server-side scripting environments support two approaches. One is to use some type of HTML template file with script code interspersed to generate variable data. The other is to use code to generate all HTML results. This course introduces template files, but most of the examples follow the code generation approach to focus on server-side scripting concepts.
