Introduction

Web programming refers to all the tasks involved in Web development, including the creation of Web content and the necessary coding of Web clients and Web servers. 

The client side deals with the needs for the user to access data and provide relevant information while the server side is concerned about data retrieval, security and performance. To achieve those tasks, Web programmers work with a variety of scripting tools and database technology.

Why Consider a Certificate in Web Programming?

The Web Programming Certification provides the skills necessary for Web content delivery, including database analysis and design, as well as client and server-side scripting methods and languages.
 
An Internet Studies Center (ISC) certificate in Web Programming documents the fact that a student is knowledgeable in a variety of technologies currently used in Web development. Students who complete the required courses for the Web Programing certificate will be able to create and manage both client applications and server side programs including databases. This certificate is primarily targeted at computer science majors.
