Students will learn the process of service creation of internet services and applications. The course gives insight into the challenges of application-specific, content-centric, collaborative services, the internet as a service and application development platform. The necessary technological basics and quality of service solutions are also explained. During the project teamwork, the students will gain experience in practice how new services are created, from planing through implementation.
