General information

  • Structure of the course: lecture (2SWH) and exercise (2 SWH)
  • Language of the lecture: German, partly English


In preparation for the first exercise, every exercise participant may download a VirtualBox Virtual Machine (VM). This VM is pre-configured with Apache, MySQL, PHP and all further software necessary in the exercises. It can be readily used with one's own computer. Since VirtualBox can be freely used on Windows, Linux and Mac, exercise participants may use their own notebook. Participants who are reluctant to use their own notebook may run the VM on CiP Pool machines by using USB flash drives. The whole VM fits on an USB flash drive with at least 6 GB capacity.
