Web and browser-based technology is an active field in the practice of computer science. In recent years, universities have started to develop Web programming courses and curricula, often struggling with how to define such programs. Questions arise as to how Web programming relates to traditional programming paradigms. Can it or should it be integrated into traditional programming coursework? Other questions address the cross-discipline nature of developing information delivery systems for the Web. The problem solving elements of computer science and systems integration are side-by-side with business needs and graphical arts requirements. This paper reports on the effort to define a philosophy for an applied Web programming curriculum for an associate's degree in a computer and information technology program.
