Description of Module Assessment
Design and development of a secure distributed multi-tier web application using an agile development approach.Students will be required to design, develop and evaluate a secure distributed multi-tier web application using an agile development approach. A scenario will be supplied and students will be required to evaluate appropriate design and development techniques in order to then implement an appropriate solution. Each student will submit the code and documentation for a distributed multi-tier web application (equivalent to a 3000 word report) together with a demonstration of the final product where they discuss the key design and development issues that they have faced and the results of a suitable evaluation e.g. via a "recorded screencast" or "live demo" (equivalent to a 2000 word report)
