University Offers Web Programming for
Non-Programmers March 28

Wondering what you can do to get on web, but don’t have a programming background?

Texas A&M International University’s A. R. Sanchez Jr. School of Business’ Division of International Business and Technology Studies will offer a non-credit professional course, “Web Programming for Non-Programmers,” on Saturday, March 28, 2009 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in TAMIU’s Pellegrino Hall, room 221.

Course cost is $250 per person and $200 for TAMIU alumni, employees and students.

All businesses, small, medium, or large must have a presence on the Internet. Web programming has become easier and a degree in computer science is not necessary to do web programming anymore. This course is designed for business professionals with no computer programming background.

Students will have the opportunity to create interactive web pages from scratch, including database access and interaction. Those who would find the course especially useful would include managers, professionals, and entrepreneurs seeking to jumpstart into web programming.

Students in the business area are also encouraged to take this course since it could help them understand basic web programming. Participants are expected to have knowledge in computers but not necessarily knowledge in programming, web or HTML programming.

Main topics to be covered include: Introduction to Web programming, Web forms and applications, web matrix and visual programming, creating user interfaces, connecting to databases, security, testing your application and “What do I do next?” Sources and help using the Internet.

The course will be lead by Jesus Carmona, a doctoral student in the MIS concentration of the Ph.D. Program in International Business Administration at TAMIU.

He is also an adjunct professor in the University’s Division of international Business and Technology Studies.

He holds a B.A. degree in agronomy from the Instituto Tecnologico de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITESM), and an M.S. degree in information systems from TAMIU.

Interested persons should register soon; seating is limited. Registration forms are available by calling Cindy Martínez, program coordinator, at 326.2486 or e-mailing cindy@tamiu.edu

Registration will also be held Saturday, March 28 at 7:30 a.m. on site. University office hours are 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday - Friday. The University is closed for Spring Break on Thursday and Friday, March 19 and 20. Offices reopen on Monday, March 23.
