You are now connected to the official Web Engineering.org source of technical and strategic information on Web Engineering. Web Engineering is the application of systematic, disciplined and quantifiable approaches to the cost-effective development, operation, and evolution of high-quality applications in the World Wide Web.
The WebEngineering.org Community Portal will provide you access to the latest version of the new Web Engineering Community Portal. The site is still under development, but a lot of the functionality is already there and might help you. Please feel free to suggest further functionality, forums etc. - We will try to include these suggestions asap.
The World Wide Web (Web) has become the dominant platform for ubiquitously accessible information and applications of any kind. The Web has gone far beyond presenting information of research groups as in its early beginning. Although the applications become increasingly complex, the development process still remains ad-hoc. A large gap between design models and the implementation model of the Web has been recognized to be one of the main reasons for the low acceptance of disciplined development in the Web. It becomes clear that the construction and evolution of applications for the World Wide Web requires support such as is available for traditional applications through process models, architectures, methods and principles of software engineering. This new discipline that has been established during the previous years, is therefore seen as:
Web Engineering - The application of systematic, disciplined and quantifiable approaches to the cost-effective development and evolution of high-quality solutions in the World Wide Web.
