It contains major improvements and refinements, and we'll take you through the full lowdown in this online course. Learn everything you need to know about the language's latest features right here!
Learn the Latest Swift 3 Syntax
Optimise Your App for the App Store
This online course is a must for any Swift developer who wants to get up to speed with Swift 3 and use iOS 10 features. You will need a working knowledge of previous versions of Swift, and some experience with app development. However if you're migrating over from C or Objective-C, you should be more than capable of following along.
The course starts off with an overview of Swift fundamentals and Swift 3's new syntax. Once the basics are covered, you'll learn about classes and methods, message integrations, notifications, and Sirikit implementation. As you do so, you'll move into building small apps in each section, each one making use of a new iOS 10 feature. These are the building blocks that will allow you to create a wide range of applications, all based on Swift 3 and the latest iOS update.
By the end of this course, you'll know how to optimise your app and use the latest iOS features to your advantage, therefore boosting your chances of having your app accepted to the App store and purchased by customers.
Swift is a relatively new programming language dedicated to all things Apple (iOS, MacOS etc.). It is considered the successor to C and Objective-C, taking the best elements of both and modernising them for safety and efficiency. It is a general purpose language and is designed to work with Apple's Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks. It is used for building apps for all Apple platforms.

You’ll install WordPress using Google Cloud, which includes creating Docker files, images, and containers along with deploying the site live.
Next you’ll create and configure a back-end and front-end master and slave nodes with replication controllers; apps managed by Kubernetes using a cluster of VMs. Sound confusing? Don’t worry, you’ll get hands-on training at every step to guide you in the right direction.
By the end of this course you will know what containers are and more than one way to use them to deliver software applications faster. You’ll know everything you need to know about Docker and Kubernetes, and you’ll never have to worry about using either one for your software application project ever again!
About Kubernetes and Docker
Docker is the world’s leading software containerization platform. It packages your application into one standardised unit, wrapping it into a complete file system that contains everything needed to run on a server. Kubernetes is a system created by Google to automate the deployment, scaling and management of containerized applications (like the ones Docker creates). The two combined make life a breeze for anyone needing to transport, install and maintain complex software applications anywhere.

First you’ll cover the basic features using a sample environment, gaining an understanding of restarts, dependencies, and persisting the database with a volume.
After that you’ll progress to networks. You’ll take an in-depth look at isolating containers, aliases and container names, links, using external networks, and how updates affect networking. Then it’s on to the really good stuff; a section each is dedicated to volumes, logging, the Compose CLI, and ‘Composing Compose’ (don’t worry, it won’t be as complicated as it sounds by the time you get there). Finally you’ll learn about Compose in Production.
The course is organised into logical sections so you can progress at your pace and in your own time. By the end, you’ll apply what you’ve learned to create a large environment for a sample legacy system, using all of the features covered in previous sections. You’ll then have the skills and confidence needed to go forth and create your own flexible application environments with Docker Compose.
About Docker Compose
Docker Compose is a useful tool from the people at Docker. It makes defining and running application environments made up of multiple Docker containers even easier and more efficient. Up until now, starting any more than one or two Docker containers was extremely complicated. With Docker Compose, the entire process just got infinitely better.
Knowing the suite of C languages developed my Microsoft is a guaranteed career booster. They’re powerful, in-demand, and can create almost any kind of application or software under the sun. However, they’re not exactly the most beginner friendly languages in the world. While they all have the same roots, they have distinct differences too. Thankfully C# is generally considered to be the least confusing of the family, and a level up from Java as far as skill is concerned. This crash course will teach you everything you need to know and make you a C# aficionado in a matter of hours.
