Web Development Services maintains test and production application environments to deliver university-wide, critical services to the Web. "Critical" means that if the system goes down, work comes to a halt or important information is unavailable to large numbers of individuals.
We reserve this service for functions that cannot be provided in other, simpler ways. More information is provided in this section.
If you have a need for a Web application that fits this description, this page describes how to get started. There are two ways to get your application developed:
- If you feel you don't have the expertise to tackle this kind of a project, you can hire a Web Development student assistant. They have been trained to work with you to design and develop your system using tools available in our lab.
- If you have the right experience, then you may want to develop the system yourself with our help. We'll work with you to make sure you have the resources you need to build software compatible with our environment. However, if you need the extra power of a MS SQL Server database, we currently require that you hire an LTS Web developer, owing to the inherent complexities and security issues involved with MS SQL Server.
Developing Your Own Application
In order to safely support scripting on our main campus Web servers, we must take precautions to ensure that applications do not interfere with its daily operations. Therefore, we have developed a process that developers must follow that creates a secure, stable environment. Refer to the pages linked in the sidebar for more information.
