Learn PHP Model View Controller Pattern (PHP MVC)
Hours: 4.5
Lectures: 32

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.

Python Web Development with Flask
Hours: 15
Lectures: 107
This course will teach you, assuming no prior coding knowledge, how to develop back end web applications the way professional coders do in the top internet startups. How do I know this? Because I've been leading tech teams in both large enterprise as well as startup companies in New York City for the past 15 years.

I have seen a lot of courses and free tutorials and I can tell you 90% of them just teach bad habits while promising to turn you into a real “web developer". But let me tell you a reality: There's no such thing as a web developer these days. You're either a back end web applications developer, a front end application developer or the so-called (and rare) full stack web developer which includes the other two. However there are so many technologies to master in both the backend and frontend areas that full-stacks (or “web developers") are a rarity in professional environments -- You're either a back end or a front end web developer.

This course doesn't promise to turn you into a professional back end developer after you complete it...but it will give you a good foundation from where to start and continue your training, knowing the right path to become a real professional backend web applications developer using Python. My goal is to make a second course, which would introduce more advanced back end concepts and then start the front end courses (basic and advanced) soon after that.

The course goes through a step by step process of developing web applications, teaching you the Python basics for web development, introducing Flask and using Cloud9 as your development environment. It then moves to explore SQL databases, using MySQL and finally showing you how to develop a blogging application using all these learnings.

Best of all, you don't need to install anything as we will use a revolutionary online web development environment that essentially gives you your own Linux web server with database capabilities! All you need to have is a browser and internet connection and it's completely free to you.

At the end of the course students will be challenged with a final project where all the course material will need to be used to complete it. Students that finish the final project will be eligible for special future promotions.

Finally, you will learn how to run your application using Docker Containers, one of the hottest new technologies that allow developers to write their applications and deploy easily to a number of cloud hosting platforms and scale them indefinitely.

Learn MongoDB From Scratch
Hours: 2.5
Lectures: 51

Data is a very popular buzzword in the technology industry right now. As more and more people move their activities online, the data companies and websites collect on them will become even more relevant. And guess what that means? Programmers and developers who know their way around databases – and more importantly, who can actually interpret and build things from them – will be in high demand. MongoDB is one of the most dynamic databases out there, so getting to grips with it sooner rather than later means you’ll stay well ahead of the curve.

Become a MongoDB Master

The goal is to provide a solid foundation of MongoDB knowledge. To get you up and running on building your own web apps with MongoDB at their core, and to help you understand the capabilities, functionality and limitations of what this database can do.

You’ll learn how to configure and run MongoDB, start importing data, and then quickly get stuck into creating new databases. You’ll pick up Mongo Query Language commands and dive into one of MongoDB’s most powerful features, the Aggregation Framework. You’ll work through detailed examples to gain an understanding of the various pieces of the puzzle, all the while learning about this database’s scaling, replication, and sharding abilities.

By the end of this course, those examples you’ve been working on will all fit together to form a complete, working web application that’s fully integrated with MongoDB. And not only that, you’ll have the confidence, knowledge and practice needed to start working on your own MongoDB projects straight away.

About MongoDB

MongoDB is an open source database with a document-oriented data model. It differs from a relational database in that instead of storing data in tables and rows, it stores JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas. Because of this, it lends developers the ability to create applications rooted in data in ways they never could before.

WordPress Security : Secure Your Site Against Hackers!
Hours: 2.5
Lectures: 35

Fact: over 30,000 websites are hacked everyday. Fact: cybercrime costs the global economy over $450 billion. Fact: over 1.5 million WordPress sites were hacked in a single day this year due to a single vulnerability.

Don’t think website security isn’t important.

Cyber-criminals are out there using sophisticated software to scan the internet for any type of vulnerable website.

Hackers don’t care if your website is big, small, a non-profit, or profit making. A hacked website is worth money to them as they can either extort money from a website owner, or place links or code on the site to support some other type of criminal activity.

Online security is of paramount importance to every human being on this planet. This course is for everybody. There is very little use of technical terminology or advanced online procedures. Anyone with basic computer skills can protect any WordPress website by following this course.

The course starts with the two biggest causes of hacks on websites and shows you the simple and non-technical ways to protect yourself. The two biggest causes of hacks on WordPress websites are:

  1. easily guessed or stolen usernames and password
  2. out of date software

I show how to use secure and unguessable passwords that are different on every site.

I continue to explain how to ensure all the software that’s used to run your site, not only the WordPress software, is not only up-to-date but kept up-to-date. We also cover home directory and webroot hygiene as well as disabling directory listing and error reporting.

I then show how to set up and install the Wordfence Security plugin which will:

  • protect a site with a cloud-based firewall
  • scan your site everyday for known vulnerabilities and changes in the WordPress code
  • block malicious IPs and requests
  • and much more

I demonstrate how to set up and schedule back-ups. So if anything goes wrong in the future you can restore your site back to an early copy.

I then go on to explain step-by-step technical methods to really lock down a WordPress website.

Don’t think that online security doesn't matter to you. Your online security is as important as your physical security.

My name's Rob Cubbon and I have run a web and graphic design business for over a decade. I have built countless WordPress websites for myself and others.

However, I have been hacked!

This was a chastening experience. Not only was this attach to one of my websites extremely costly in terms of money and time, but I was also shocked at my ignorance of many website security procedures.

Online security, website security, and WordPress security are now topics I take extremely seriously. I want to prevent other people from having a similarly terrible experience.

Essential Git - All You Need to Know to Use Git Effectively
Master the popular source control system


This course simply teaches what you *really* need to know about Git. After working professionally with Git for more than 5 years with large and distributed teams, I will show you, step by step and cutting out all the fat, what Git is, what’s the use case behind each feature and how you can use it effectively like most professional web developers use it.

The course starts assuming you know nothing about Git and step by step explains the theory and introduces each command, progressing in a smooth, logical flow.

At the end of the course you participate in an open source project hosted in Github where you will collaborate with other student building a worldwide restaurant guide, where you will need to apply everything you learned in the course.

Additionally, you will be able to purchase a complete book of the whole course, so that you have an easy reference to all the knowledge.

The course has more than 2 hours of video tutorials and you can also purchase a book that covers all of the video content, so that you can refer any information in a printed format.

If you search on the web, you’ll find hundreds of courses, videos and other resources about Git, but it’s work that’s incredibly tedious and leaves more questions than answers. You can also buy a “Pro Git” book and try to learn all of Git as if it was your end goal. The truth is Git is only a very basic utility tool that you shouldn’t be thinking about. You should spend your valuable time learning more productive things, like computer languages. With this course you’ll get that level of comfort, knowing you will be using Git without thinking about it.
