    7. Objectives, learning outcomes and obtained knowledge

    The aim of the subject is to overview of the different mobile platforms and their common and unique properties. During the course, we will investigate the different tools that are used to develop application on the different platforms. A quick prototype developing methods will also be presented. Furthermore, the course give an overview of the modern web based technologies. Students will get familiar with useful tools for developing multiplatform applications. 

    8. Synopsis


    During the course, students get an overview of the latest model platforms and its capabilities. The course teaches the student to be able to choose the most suitable tool and platform for solving a given problem and give the knowledge to estimate the complexity of a project. Furthermore, the method of developing small application for Java Me platform is presented, as well as the basics of Android platform and usage of the Android emulator. The course also presents the method of quick prototype- development method in Python environment. The following techniques will be described: application structure, basic UI, development compiling and installing.

    Besides the mobile platform, modern client based web technologies are also presented with the method of developing web applications for devices with small screen and using development tools for multiplatform.





    Web and mobile client development with modern design patterns. Overview of the common features of the mobile platforms. New mobile devices special hardware’s: Touch screen, fingerprint, accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, barometer, camera, different commination technologies, etc. Differences between the development for PC and mobile eminent. Investigation of the mobile devices computational capacities. The main characters of the mobile market.

    Basics of the web based applications. Client-server based network topology with HTTP (session, cookie, etc.) Presenting the concept of the dynamic web.


    HTML basics: language, common tools. CSS: usage of style sheets in html.


    Basics of JavaScript: language, usage of forms and validation.


    Introduction of the HTML DOM: frequently used HTML and JavaScript solutions, basics of JQuery. Mobile Web.


    Development of dynamic webpages: AJAX. Rest communication. Typical usage of JSON. Cross-domain policy.


    Cloud services in mobile environment: IaaS, Paas, Baas, Saas


    Basics of cross platform application development: cross platform application lifecycle.

    Based on the lectures, small applications are developed during the laboratory exercises:

    Laboratory exercise



    Basic mobile application development with network communication on Java Me platform


    Application development on Android platform.


    Quick prototype-development with Python in SL4A environment.


    Client-server network topology in practice. Simple website development. HTTP traffic monitoring.


    Web page development for mobile devices with the usage of: CSS, JavaScript, JQuery.

    9. Method of instruction Lecture, seminar
    10. Assessment
    During mid-term:
    (1) Attending to Laboratory exercises. Every laboratory starts with small tests to control if the students is ready for the exercise.
    (2) One Mid-term test
    (3) One Homework that has to be prepared roll the 13. mid-term week.
    Requirements for signature:
     Participating on the 70% of the laboratory exercises with passed small test.
     Passed mid-term test till the end of the mid-term.
     On time prepared Homework
    Exam period: written exam.

    For getting mark from the subject signature and passed exam are needed.

    The mid-term test, laboratory practices and homework give the 15-15-20% of the mark. The written exams gives the 50% of the mark

    The minimum requirement on the mid-term and written exam is 40%. 

    11. Recaps

    It is possible to write the mid-term exam again on the supplement week. The homework must be uploaded till the end of 13th week. It can be uploaded one more on the supplement week. One laboratory work can be done again on the supplement week. The supplement week is the week after the semester before the exams.

    12. Consultations It is possible at the office hour of the lecturer and the laboratory leader.
