Reston, VA (Vocus) September 15, 2009
CMS Watch, in partnership with Siteworx, today released “Web Development Platforms,” an online course for anyone involved in either choosing a web application development framework, or needing to understand the differences between web application development frameworks.
This course is designed for project managers, R&D managers, IT managers, or anyone involved in web application development, including line-of-business stakeholders who want to have a more detailed appreciation of some of the technical aspects of web app development. The course discusses four very popular, commonly used platforms: Java, .NET, LAMP and Ruby on Rails.
“By providing a core fundamental curriculum, examining the top four application development platforms, CMS Watch and Siteworx are filling a critical business need,” said CMS Founder, Tony Byrne.
“For IT leaders, the curriculum provides a business-oriented analysis of the relative pros and cons and strategic implications of selecting one application development platform over another,” noted Siteworx President, Tim McLaughlin. “For business leaders, the curriculum demystifies the technical complexity of web application development platforms to guide internal planning and alignment.”
“Web Development Platforms” explains current state-of-the-art, as well as outlines emerging directions. After this course, even a non-technical manager will know and appreciate the differences between Java, .NET, LAMP and Ruby on Rails, and be able to make an informed decision about which framework is best for which kind of web application project.
The course packs a considerable amount of information into four hours, via digestible one-hour modules that speak to various professional needs:
- Overview of web development teams
- Ruby on Rails
The course is available for purchase on the CMS Watch website:
