Teaching methods
lectures, practical demonstration and exercise on a computer
Assessment methods
Presence on lectures is not required. To grain credits the student has to solve themselves two moderately difficult problems using shell scripts, create a valid web page describing this solution and defend it verbally. The defence, which occurs on a computer, consists of explanation of the scripts and realisation of simple corrections or modifications in them. The problems are chosen by students during the semester from a given set, each student solves different problems.
