Data-Driven Cloud Applications
CIT 41200/ 3 Cr.
This course will introduce students to a number of concepts related to the development and deployment of structured datasets and data driven applications using a variety of computing services. Projects will include (but are notlimited to) consumption of available data into an application, the transfer of large datasets to an appropriate cloud service, development of an interface to allow third party access to datasets, and the creation of one or more software applications that meet user needs and utilize custom datasets.
