This is the course plan for the second semester of the academic year 2022/2023. To check whether the course is being run this semester, go to the Virtual Campus section More UOC / The University / Programmes of study section on Campus. Once teaching starts, you'll be able to find it in the classroom. The course plan may be subject to change.
The Web Programming course introduces the student to the world of front-end development, the part of the creation of web applications that runs in the user's browser. To do so, the course builds on the programming knowledge acquired in the Fundamentals of Programming course and deepens it using JavaScript as a language. 

The main objective of the course is to provide the student with the necessary tools to start developing front-end applications, while going in depth in programming skills and abilities. 

The course also provides an introduction to TypeScript, a free and open source programming language, which is a superset of JavaScript and is increasingly used in the world of web development.


This course is part of the group of courses that work on software development and, more specifically, applied programming.


To take this course it is necessary to have previously taken the Fundamentals of Programming and Web Standards and Languages courses, since the skills acquired in both will be essential to work on this course’s competences.


  • To know the JavaScript scripting language and to know how to make programs with it.
  • To know the basics of Object Oriented Programming and how it is used in the JavaScript language.
  • To know the objects that form the web browsers’ document object model and their manipulation using JavaScript.
  • To learn how to create dynamic web pages using the JavaScript language.
  • To understand the differences between JavaScript and TypeScript and to be able to develop TypeScript applications.


  1. Fundamentals of JavaScript programming
  2. The DOM, events and object orientation 
  3. JavaScript APIs and libraries
  4. TypeScript


The assessment process is based on the student's personal work and presupposes authenticity of authorship and originality of the exercises completed.

Lack of authenticity of authorship or originality of assessment tests, copying or plagiarism, the fraudulent attempt to obtain a better academic result, collusion to copy or concealing or abetting copying, use of unauthorized material or devices during assessment, inter alia, are offences that may lead to serious academic or other sanctions.

Firstly, you will fail the course (D/0) if you commit any of these offences when completing activities defined as assessable in the course plan, including the final tests. Offences considered to be misconduct include, among others, the use of unauthorized material or devices during the tests, such as social media or internet search engines, or the copying of text from external sources (internet, class notes, books, articles, other students' essays or tests, etc.) without including the corresponding reference.

And secondly, the UOC's academic regulations state that any misconduct during assessment, in addition to leading to the student failing the course, may also lead to disciplinary procedures and sanctions.

The UOC reserves the right to request that students identify themselves and/or provide evidence of the authorship of their work, throughout the assessment process, and by the means the UOC specifies (synchronous or asynchronous). For this purpose, the UOC may require students to use a microphone, webcam or other devices during the assessment process, and to make sure that they are working correctly.

The checking of students' knowledge to verify authorship of their work will under no circumstances constitute a second assessment.


This course can be passed by two means:

- With the activities performed during the year and taking a synthesis test (ST):

The combination of the final mark of the continuous assessment activities (CA) and the final mark of the practical (Pr) gives the final continuous assessment mark (FC: CA + Pr).
To be eligible for taking the ST, the final continuous assessment mark (FC) must be equal or greater than 5. The final course mark will be obtained subsequently by crossing the mark of the ST with the FC.

- By taking a final exam (EX):

To take the EX, you do not need to have passed the CA. Using this means, the final course mark is obtained by crossing the mark of the EX with the final mark of the practical (Pr).

Either way, the practical (Pr) is compulsory.

The formula for accrediting the course is as follows: (CA + Pr) + ST or EX + Pr.
