This is an English translation of the module. In case of discrepancy between the translation and the Danish version, the Danish version of the module is valid.

Students who complete this module acquire a basic proficiency in programming.

The student gets a basic introduction to the concepts behind client-server based networks and underlying protocols. Furthermore, the student gets an introduction to client- and server-side development. Thereby, the student gains an understanding of basic concepts and mechanisms in a programming language so that these can be used to implement smaller applications

Learning objectives


  • understand the structure of client-server networks
  • understand program design methods and the ability to distinguish between good and bad programming practices
  • understand the basic principles of a programming language, including control structures, data types, data structures and function programming languages, so that these can be used to implement smaller applications


  • apply acquired knowledge in the design of a simple application
  • implement, interpret and analyze program code
  • apply programming skills to process and process keyboard and mouse inputs
  • apply programming skills to design and implement basic functions
  • discuss and evaluate the quality of a given program code


  • evaluate existing program code, evaluate its design and suggest changes
  • use specified web programming languages ​​to solve specific programming tasks
