DPS907 Virtual Textbook


In this course, you will use digital and physical documentation to help you learn web services programming. The following is a list of the documentation you will use during the course, presented in the order that we use it.

Read all = read that page/document; you are not required to follow links (although you can if you want)

Skim = skim that page/document; later, you may be asked to return and fully read the page/document

View [all | part] = view the video; all or part (with timing recommendations)
