Selection of Server-Side Technologies for an E-Business Curriculum
Sandvig, J. Christopher
Journal of Information Systems Education, v18 n2 p215-226 2007
The rapid growth of e-business and e-commerce has made server-side programming an increasingly important topic in information systems (IS) and computer science (CS) curricula. This article presents an overview of the major features of several popular server-side programming technologies and discusses the factors that influence the selection of server-side programming for teaching e-business curriculum. The factors include the capabilities of the technology, its complexity, infrastructure requirements, fit within the broader curriculum, market share, employer demand, and the availability of supporting resources such as books and on-line help. It concludes with a brief description of the decision-making process at Western Washington University (WWU). (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.)
