Course Syllabus

Abstract

The course begins with the basics of Python, Flask and Web Development, essential for building simple web-applications. Emphasis is both on backend and frontend issues, but also on the general awareness about the web-development implications for social interactions facilitation. ‘Learn Python for Data Science - Online Course’ https://www.datacamp.com/courses/intro-to-python-for-data-science

Assessment Elements

Assessment Elements

  • non-blocking Online programming tasks
  • non-blocking Homework Projects
    Students should develop an application with the help of Python programming language, using Flask libraries and MySQL DBMS. The application should involve one of the AI algorithms, such as collaborative filtering and have a web-interface which supports at least one user scenario. The user scenario should start with logging into the application and end with returning the result of algorithm usage, for instance, a list of recommended products. Projects are done during the second module. Works are submitted in English. Students are allowed to make an application on any topic they like. Progress is supervised by the instructor. Students divide in groups of three, and assign roles to themselves (project manager, designer, programmist) to determine the domain area they are responsible for. However, equal contribution is expected from each of them. As a final result, students must send a repository containing code, issues, basic flow of the user, and description.
