In this course you will learn how PHP Model View Controllers (PHP MVC) work and how to create one yourself.
Using the open source and well documented PHP MVC Project as a starting point, you will learn how to incorporate Model View Controllers into your development and solidify your skills by building your own MVC based framework.
What Is Model-View-Control?
The Model-View-Control (MVC) pattern, originally formulated in the late 1970s, is a software architecture pattern built on the basis of keeping the presentation of data separate from the methods that interact with the data. In theory, a well-developed MVC system should allow a front-end developer and a back-end developer to work on the same system without interfering, sharing, or editing files either party is working on.
Even though MVC was originally designed for personal computing, it has been adapted and is widely used by web developers due to its emphasis on separation of concerns, and thus indirectly, reusable code. The pattern encourages the development of modular systems, allowing developers to quickly update, add, or even remove functionality.

Learn a simple, streamlined coding language quickly and easily
If you've never written a single line of code or if you're well-versed in multiple program languages, Python Programming for Beginners will enable you to better understand programming concepts.
Widely regarded as one of the most simple and versatile programming languages out there, Python is used for web programming, video game building, microchip testing, desktop apps, and so much more. Used by programmers, developers, designers and everyone in between, it's one of the easiest programming languages to learn, and definitely the best starting point for new coders. This course will not only give you an understanding of the code, but will enable you to create and run real world Python programs too.
This course includes over 26 lectures and 3.5 hours of content, designed specifically for Python programming beginners.
You will be guided through the installation process and the basic concepts of Python programming, understanding with the language as a whole. From there, you'll dive straight into the specifics, learning the variables, loops and statements of the language and understanding the function parameters, variables and common errors.
During this course you'll have the opportunity to put your knowledge to practical use by working with files and classes, importing syntax and making modules, and most importantly, by building your own Python program from scratch.
You'll walk away with detailed knowledge of one of the most widely used programming languages in the world. You'll have gained a foundation of skills that will enable you to progress to more complex coding languages, as well as understanding the underlying principles of all programming languages. In short, you'll have everything you need to become a proficient programmer.
Programming is becoming more and more popular all around the world.
Programming provides extreme amounts of power and flexibility, because you can take control of your computer's actual power, and you can develop your own systems and prototypes.
Python is becoming especially popular, because it's extremely user-friendly whilst still maintaining a lot of the power that other, more complex, programming languages offer. Additionally, Python has a huge community, which means all sorts of modern projects, such as Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, etc. have been develop for the Python community to use, which makes implementing these sorts of advanced techniques extremely easy (sometimes only 1-2 lines of code).
Employers love employees that can program, because they can go out and quickly produce results or create prototypes. The ability to program will not only open you up to new opportunities, but it will also become a better logical thinker, since computers operate on logical statements, so a good programmer has a natural thought flow that is very logical.
With the digitalization of the modern world, programming is becoming a lot more important. It's versatility allows you to solve simple repetitive, as well as long and complex problems, and its power and breadth of application is solely dependent on the programmer.
Python is a scripting language that has a very large community. It allows for very fast and easy prototyping, and the community makes complex things, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, readily useable for the public. Python is a great language to learn, as it's much easier to read and understand, but it still allows you to do whatever you want. It's perfect for your first programming language, because it has great readability, but also as your second, third, or fourth (or even more), because of how quickly you can develop in it.
This course will take you through a lot of the essentials of what you'll need to be able to program, and at the end should leave you with solid fundamentals and an understanding which you can then apply to create your own programs, or which you can use to continue your learning endeavours into more advanced areas.
This course is designed to not beat around the bush, and will teach you Python programming in a very short time. It does this through lectures that are to the point, as well as by providing you extra material and practice sheets that you can use to solidify your knowledge.
Python is a big deal. More and more beginner programmers are choosing it as their first language to learn, which means its future is more than just bright - it’s dazzling. It makes coding faster, easier and fun. When combined with the object oriented programming approach these qualities are further enhanced, which means Python is virtually unstoppable. If you want to future-proof your programming skills, this is exactly what you need to learn.
Build and Enhance Python Applications
Get to Grips with Object Oriented Programming
This online course is designed with beginners in mind. Although it helps to already know the basics of Python, it’s not a requirement. You’ll be guided through the entire installation process before hitting the more challenging material. If your goal is to learn how to enhance, maintain and build highly-driven applications, then this is the course for you regardless of your skill level.
Once installation is complete you’ll dive straight into the various features and functions of Python including the class construct, attributes, methods, class variables and more. Then you’ll get to grips with the more advanced concepts. Object oriented programming in relation to Python, the constructor/destructor magic methods, and class inheritance are all given dedicated sections with live exercise demos and explanations at every stage.
As you progress through the course you’ll complete a final project based on real-world examples, to prepare you for undertaking your own OOP Python projects. By the end of this course, you’ll have a thorough understanding of Python, the object oriented programming approach, and how to combine the two.
Python is a high-level, general-purpose, dynamic programming language that is becoming ever more widespread in the programming world. It is readable, succinct, scalable, and can support multiple programming paradigms. It is now the most common ‘starter’ language taught on university programming courses and is seen by many as the future of coding.
Swift is one of the hottest new languages on the market today, and essential if you want to develop iOS apps. However, if you’ve ever tried to learn it yourself by reading manuals or following complicated tutorials, you’ll know it’s not the simplest language in the world. This course gives you a head start on your way to becoming a solid Swift engineer by explaining everything you need to know in a straightforward manner, from a beginner’s perspective. Using both practical examples and easy-to-follow theory, you’ll be a Swift expert in no time.
Swift Programming – in More Ways than One

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to write your own basic programs in Swift and understand its most important features. Don’t be intimidated, you can and will learn Swift!
Swift is a multi-paradigm programming language created for Apple. Deemed by its creators to be a ‘modern programming language that is safe, fast, and interactive’, it is designed to work with the Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks for iOS, OS X, watchOS and tvOS applications. It was introduce by Apple in 2014 and is currently in its second version.
