Client facing user interfaces and many broadcast and media control system interfaces more often than not use some form of web browser-based technologies.

This course introduces the technologies used to support those web interfaces, the servers behind them, API (Application Programming Interface) integrations with other systems and data sources, and the security methods used to keep everything safe from attack.

This highly practical course will give hands on experience on the technologies used, deploying, configuring and supporting such systems as well as covering tools and industry best practice.

By the end of the course, attendees will be able to build and configure new web server systems based on contemporary technology, as well as support basic trouble shooting and upgrade tasks.
