This course, An introduction to web applications architecture, provides an overview of the design and implementation of computer software that runs on web servers, instead of those running solely on desktop computers, laptops or mobile devices.

Web applications are software which can be accessed via a network using a web browser. Websites such as Amazon and eBay, forums and online banking systems are examples of web applications. Web services describe a standardised way of integrating web applications using internet standards and protocols.
