Introduction to Docker
Hours: 2
Lectures: 26

For much longer than anyone cares to admit, it was easier to ship a physical container of coffee beans halfway around the world than it was to get all of the necessary bits and pieces needed for a software program from one machine to another. Then came Docker, and the problem was finally solved. This very interesting platform is fun and easy to learn, and gives an entirely new perspective on the world of programming. Plus, it’s another pretty bow to add to your CV.

Your Complete Docker Crash Course

  • Learn what Docker is and how to use it
  • Familiarise yourself with the Linux operating system
  • Get to grips with Docker Hub
  • Create your own Wordpress site with Docker

No Linux Experience? No Problem!

This course has been designed for anyone who wants to learn Docker regardless of their experience level, but if you’re not familiar with Linux (which Docker uses), never fear; we’ve included an extensive - but not overwhelming - overview.

You’ll start by taking a look at Docker’s infrastructure and – you’ll be glad to know – how to install it on OSX and Windows. Once that’s done, you’ll learn everything you need to know images and containers, creating an image and running a web server. Then it’s into the nitty gritty of Docker Hub, tag, push and pull images, customising an image, and Docker Commands. You’ll finish off by creating a fully functional Wordpress website and running it, using Docker as the catalyst to make it happen.

With over 25 lectures and 2 hours of content, by the end of this course you’ll know exactly what Docker can do and how do it. Plus, you’ll be posed to use it in scenarios where it will most likely save you plenty of work. Not bad!

About Docker

Basically, Docker allows you to ‘build, ship and run any app, anywhere’. It automates the deployment of apps inside software containers using various features of the Linux operating system (although it can be used on Mac and Windows). Think of it like a shipyard with a big cargo ship – it packages the various pieces of cargo needed for delivery (i.e software), then gets it onto the ship and off to its destination efficiently, safely and in one neat package.

Essential Docker for Python Flask Development
Best practice API architecture
Hours: 2.5
Lectures: 20

This course will teach you the essential knowledge required to integrate Docker in your everyday development flow. Docker is an easy way for developers to recreate a production-level server cluster locally in their desktop or laptop using very few resources.

A lot of companies and startups are moving to Docker, because it speeds up the development process and reduces the amount of debugging that occurs when they create software against different versions of their operating system and libraries.

The course covers the basic concepts and goes through the setup of different use cases, specifically Flask-related, from a simple web application to MySQL and MongoDB multi-server setups.

At the end of the course students will be able to write solid Dockerfiles and Docker Compose configuration files that will allow them to write software against reliable environments and without the need to install packages like Python, MySQL or MongoDB. Just install the simple Docker client for Windows or Mac and you’re set to go!

If you already know the basics of Flask and you are interested in how to setup Docker containers for their development, this is the course for you.

High Availability for the LAMP Stack
Hours: 2
Lectures: 24

This step-by-step guide teaches you everything you need to know in order to eliminate single points of failure for your Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP based web applications.

This is a full blown course that demonstrates everything step-by-step...

This is not just a design, though. It's an entire course complete with lessons and demonstrations on actual Linux servers. I'll be performing the demonstrations on Ubuntu servers, but the concepts are the same no matter if you're using RedHat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, or another distribution. The only real difference is the couple of commands you'll use to perform some of the software installations. The design and configurations remain the same.

Even though this course is targeted directly at the LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP), the concepts and techniques presented can be reused in a variety of other situations. If you ever need a floating IP, the ability to add more storage to servers without downtime, to balance loads across multiple servers, or deploy a highly available database cluster, you can put what you learn in this course to good use.

Imagine...

After you complete the course you'll be able to deploy highly available web services that allow you to scale without downtime, add storage on the fly, and survive single points of failure. If you're like me and have to support what you deploy, you'll be able to start sleeping through the night with your high availability design. You also won't have to worry about painting yourself into a corner as you'll be able to take what you've learned to grow your infrastructure and support an increasing number of users.

Starting with Angular 5

Angular Version 5
Purpose: To keep this course on the cutting edge of Angular technology and be consistent in providing instruction for the features found in the latest Angular release (v5)
In this update we addressed the major changes in the Angular version 5 major release. Per our course content, including hands-on coding exercises, there were a few breaking changes in the 5.1 releases which ripped across much of the original project code and also included minor, non-breaking changes which outdated certain aspects of our original content.
We've updated all of the course’s code-along video content with version 5 code, including:
Angular-CLI repositioning & syntax usage related to its repositioning
Angular-CLI & npm syntax usage
Angular-CLI template output changes
Material 2 Library Module massive positioning changes
Material 2 inclusion and configuration syntax changes
Material 2/Animations Module repositioning
Fallout of the above deltas outdated a large percentage of the course’s existing content. Each affected video in the series was updated to reflect the current release.
The Angular Forms Module has been in flux since the inception of Angular 2. Fortunately, it has stabilized in the later 4.x releases and we feel comfortable enough in it’s current state to have included it. Forms are a pillar of web-based development and we feel this content adds significant value to the course.
While closely tied to the Angular core library, but not included in it, the Material 2 styling library has endured a lengthy, rough development and release lifecycle. As this library is so closely tied to the Angular core, we’ve included content in this video series from the beginning. Again, in this current release, many breaking changes and previously unavailable features were included. We made significant changes to existing content and created additional content to appropriately cover the current state of the Material library.
As with prior updates to this video series, we applied incremental improvements to existing content (that was not updated for v.4.3 changes) in an effort to continuously improve the overall effectiveness and appeal of the entire course.

Web frameworks can be difficult enough to get your head around at the best of times. When it comes to Angular, it can be especially challenging to keep up; new versions are released every 6 months, and although the latest version is Angular 5, there wasn't actually an 'Angular 3'! Confused? Don't be. This online course will explain it all...

Keeping Current with Angular
This course will continue to be updated regularly to reflect the constant changes in the Angular framework. We're teaching this course in a modular style rather than project-based style so that small changes in Angular can be updated right away, and not affect your ability to learn in any way.

By the time you've finished, you'll know how Angular solutions are designed, administered and developed and will have a solid understanding of how to get Angular projects up and running.
What is Angular 5?
Angular, or Angular JS, is a structural framework for dynamic web applications. In other words, it helps turn simple HTML into cool web apps that actually do stuff (rather than just staying static like a simple informational website would do), by using it as a template then extending its syntax to express components. Angular 4 is the newest and most recent 'majorly revamped' version. It is backwards compatible with Angular 2 and 4.


Angular Version 4.3

Purpose: To keep this course on the cutting edge of Angular technology and be consistent in providing instruction for the features found in the latest Angular release (v4.3)

In this update we addressed the major changes in the Angular version 4.3 release (scheduled for early July 2017). Per our course content, including hands-on coding exercises, there were a few breaking changes in the 4.3 beta/rc releases which ripped across much of the original project code and also included minor, non-breaking changes which outdated certain aspects of our original content. With this update we were also able to comfortably include an entirely new course content section focusing on the Angular Forms module. This Angular module has stabilized enough in the v.4.3 release to be included in the course.

We updated all of the course’s code-along video content to fix the breaking changes, including:

  1. Angular-CLI repositioning & syntax usage related to its repositioning
  2. Angular-CLI & npm syntax usage
  3. Angular-CLI template output changes
  4. Material 2 Library Module massive positioning changes
  5. Material 2 inclusion and configuration syntax changes
  6. Material 2/Animations Module repositioning

Fallout of the above deltas outdated a large percentage of the course’s existing content. Each affected video in the series was updated to reflect the current release.

The Angular Forms Module has been in flux since the inception of Angular 2. Fortunately, it has stabilized in the later 4.x releases and we feel comfortable enough in it’s current state to have included it as the topic for an entire new section in this course update. Forms are a pillar of web-based development and we feel this new content adds significant value to the course.

Enter Gulp; the toolkit that automates all the boring stuff, so you can build the cool stuff. It's going to make your builds so much better, and we're going to teach you how to use it...

Cut Out the Boring Bits!

  • Install, program, and configure Gulp to work for you
  • Manage JavaScript projects with Gulp
  • Leverage Gulp as a JavaScript build system
  • Create runnable 'builds' with a single command
  • Use Gulp to minify SASS files and JavaScript
  • Rewrite HTML files to reference concatenated, minified JavaScript and CSS
  • Concatenate all your JavaScript into a single, downloadable file
  • Automatically build a JavaScript project with the 'watch' feature
  • Let Gulp do all of your mundane JavaScript tasks!

Use Gulp as a JavaScript Build System

This course was designed for developers who want to enhance their workflow. However if you work with JavaScript regularly, you need this course too. We'll show you how to use to this toolkit to eliminate the most time-consuming, monotonous and downright boring tasks... and you don't even need any Gulp experience to get started!

First we'll explore Gulp at a high level. You'll gain an understanding of what a build system is, what Gulp can do for you, and we'll install and configure gulp according to your own needs. Then, the course divides into two sections; Gulp for development and Gulp for production. In the former, you'll learn about pre-processing SASS, automating your builds, the much lauded 'watch' function and the live re-load function.

In the latter, we'll focus on production for JavaScript and CSS, and we'll teach you everything you need to know about generating sourcemaps. Once you've finished the last section, you'll know exactly how to use Gulp to get maximum efficiency and productivity from your builds. You'll also be ready to use this clever toolkit to manage your JavaScript projects, minify, rewrite and concatenate your code, and basically make your developing life a whole lot easier.

What is Gulp?

Gulp is a toolkit designed to automate time-consuming tasks in your development workflow, so you can stop focussing on the boring, repetitive 'to dos' and get back to building. It makes the development processes simple and efficient, with a quality ecosystem ensuring plugins stay simple and work as expected. It's intended use is for JavaScript builds and front end web development, and it uses a code-over-configuration approach.

Starting with Backbone.js
Hours: 4.5
Lectures: 39

By its nature, working on a web application usually involves a lot of JavaScript (duh). And as any developer will tell you, it often doesn't take long for your JS code start winding through a whole heap of other elements like HTML UI speed ramps, jQuery roundabouts, and who knows what else. For complex applications a more structured approach can make life easier for everyone. Enter Backbone.js, the JavaScript framework that does exactly that. Here's what this Backbone.js online course can show you...

The Backbone of Web App Development

  • Get to know Backbone.js and how it can help you
  • Code a Backbone app with an online IDE
  • Compose functional components in Backbone's MVC paradigm
  • Raise and handle Events
  • Implement Views to control and app
  • Use Models to manage application data
  • And much more!

Understand Models, Events, Views and More

The core of Backbone.js is representing your data through Models which can be created, validated, destroyed and saved to the server, and Views that display the model's state and respond to changes. So after a quick introduction, this is what you'll learn first.

Having laid that foundation, you'll move onto the other important concepts of Backbone such as Events, namespacing, templating, routing, and much more. You'll then build a guestbook app and style it to perfection with Bootstrap. Additional resources and hands-on tutoring will help you every step of the way, no matter what your skills or experience level.

By the end of the course material, you'll be well equipped to use Backbone for developing your own web apps, and will have a greater understanding of how frameworks can elevate your developing skills (and make your life a whole lot less stressful, too).

Although intended for IT professionals, hobbyists are more than suitable for taking this course too. Some experience in creating web UIs with JavScript tools would be an advantage, as would programming with a common object-oriented or scripting language. However, you don't need any Backbone experience whatsoever. We'll teach you everything you need to know!

What is Backbone?

Backbone.js is a JavaScript framework designed for developing single page web applications and for synchronizing various elements of web apps. It was created by Jeremy Ashkenas (of CoffeeScript and Underscore.js fame) with the intention of giving developers the freedom to design the full experience of a web application. It helps keep business logic and user interface neatly separated. Backbone is praised for being lightweight and only depending on one JavaScript library.

This course focuses on building simple components and composing them to create complex, rich, functional component solutions. You'll get to grips with event handling, routing, implementing Flux architecture, and much more to master React fundamentals.

We start from the very beginning and stick with you every step of the way, kicking off with an introduction to React and getting progressively more challenging as the course continues. Don't worry – you'll soon be working on React projects with ease.

By the end of this course, you'll be productive and efficient in using this versatile library, and you'll be able to build great looking web apps faster than ever before.You'll walk away with a working knowledge of the framework, it's various facets, and you'll understand how it fits into your process. But most of all, you'll have a valuable and time-saving new skill in your developer toolbox.

What is React?

React.js is a JavaScript library that makes building user interfaces simple and painless. It is a view layer rather than a complete framework, so while it's not suitable for building a fully functional dynamic app, it adds the finishing touch to make your websites look flawless. React is maintained by Facebook, Instagram and a wider community of developers and can be used with React-based add-ons or in conjunction with other JS libraries and frameworks.

Starting with Ember.js 2
Hours: 5
Lectures: 68

Ember isn't like other JavaScript frameworks. Instead of providing a solution to the 'view' part of the Model-View-Controller design process, it tackles the client-side application problem as a whole. Whether it's web, mobile, or service applications, Ember works it using the model-view-viewmodel approach and does it flawlessly. If you're a IT professional or just a hobbyist interested in web architecture, UI design, or even testing and administrating, Ember will make your life infinitely easier.

Ember Experience, on the other hand, is absolutely not necessary.

This course will start off by giving you an overview of what Ember is and how and why it works. Then you'll install it and get going with the good stuff! You'll start off with routing, templates and helpers, Ember components and Ember Data, and once you've to grip with the fundamentals you'll begin building your own Ember app.

You'll design your app, build it out, create the components and complete the code, and then you'll move on to testing it. But it doesn't stop there; this course also covers more advanced aspects including styling, add-ons and security. By the time you're finished, you'll be more than capable of getting your own Ember projects up and running.

About Ember

Ember is a free, open-source, JavaScript framework for creating ambitious web applications. It allows web developers and UI/UX developers to create scalable, single-page web apps by incorporating common idioms, reducing code lines with Handlebars-integrated templates, and creating application-specific HTML tags.
