Beginning with installation, features and syntax, you'll quickly get to grips with creating functions with Erlang, conditional flow and looping and working with process IDs. Then it's into the core of Erlang; lists, recursions, comprehensions, pattern matching, types and type conversions, exception handling, records and more. If it sounds complicated, don't worry; our expert tutor will guide you every step of the way.
By the end of the course, you'll know how to build basic programs with Erlang and will have a solid foundation of knowledge to build on. If you're an aspiring programmer of any kind or even an experienced one looking for a new challenge, then this course is for you.
Erlang is a functional programming language originally developed by Ericsson to build software for its telecommunications products. It's completely different to most other programming languages out there, and is in fact more like an operating system than anything else. It can be used for a variety of tasks including monitoring systems and distributing databases, among others.
To a certain extent, it can seem as though different programming languages are only suitable for a specified set of tasks, like building apps or analysing data. If you feel as though you need to be fluent in several in order to get anywhere in the coding world, think again. Node.js is a very versatile (and very popular) language that, if you add it to your skill set, is guaranteed to open doors. Create real time web apps, build APIs, streaming applications or CPU intensive apps, and do it all quickly and efficiently.

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
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!
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.
Unless you've been living under a rock for the last few decades, you'll know that Apple has a strong hold over the technology world; a hold that won't loosen its grip any time soon.

If you have a good internet connection, a basic understanding of what an Android app is, and a great idea for an app that doesn't yet exist, then you're the perfect candidate! While the course is aimed at beginner programmers or those with no coding experience whatsoever, experienced app builders who want to learn from a new angle will benefit too.
During the 204 lectures and 17 hours of content contained within this course, you'll learn the basics of programming in a fun and practical way, while creating fully fledged, ready-to-use Android apps. You'll start off with setting up App Inventor 2 and choosing the options you'll need for your future apps. Then you'll get to know the interface and tools before diving straight in and creating not one, not two, but TEN apps. These apps will increase in complexity as you work through them, using features such as the component editor and blocks editor.
When you've built your ten apps you'll also learn how to test, update, and publish them to the Play Store. By the end of this course, you'll be an advanced app builder using App Inventor 2.
App Inventor 2 is an open source web application originally developed by Google and now maintained by MIT. It is aimed at beginner programmers and specially designed to enable them to build Android apps. It turns complicated coding language into visual drag and drop blocks, so there is no need for the user to learn code before building their apps.
When it comes to the world of technology, staying ahead of the curve is always a challenge. In the last year one aspect of this – the world wide web – has kicked up a gear with the introduction of HTML5, the newest version of the code that makes the web tick. If you learn HTML5 along with CSS3 (the next level of web design used on all modern websites), you'll have a recipe for success; and this course will show you how.
Create a website from scratch with HMTL5 and CSS3

If you know how to use a web browser and a text editor, you're all set up for this course already. No extra software or tools are needed, and you can choose your preferred option of each to get going. By the time you finish, you'll know everything you need to know to create beautiful, functional, easy to use websites of any kind.
About HTML5 and CSS3
HTML or Hyper Text Mark-up Language is the language used for presenting websites and web content. HTML5 is the latest version, made official by the World Wide Web Consortium in 2014. Having a good grasp of HTML means you'll be able to create, present and edit a whole variety of content on the web.
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) essentially 'enhances' HTML, giving developers and users more control over how pages and content is displayed. It is responsible for creating more visually engaging web pages, applications and interfaces. CSS3 is the latest version, and has many more extended features than previous versions – although it is backwards compatible.
Swift is one of the hottest new languages on the market today, and essential if you want to develop iOS apps.

The result is simplified development and testing of applications and, ultimately, faultless single page and hybrid applications.
This course will allow you to grasp the basic concepts of AngularJS and its main features. You'll be provided with functional examples throughout to compound your learning, giving you the opportunity to put it to practical use.
After an overview of environment setup and MVC architecture, you'll get to grips with the more complex attributes of AngularJS, including modules and dependency injection, controllers, expressions, directives, scopes, filter, routing, and two-way data binding.
From Section 4 onwards, you'll build up a framework for your own dynamic app using bootstrap layouts, filters, list routing and setting parameters. You'll learn how to add useful functions like adding, updating and deleting elements, form validation and more. You'll even tackle debugging with Chrome console and add custom directives to make your HTML as readable as it can be.
By the end of the course, you will be confident enough to begin your own AngularJS projects, using the framework for creating web and hybrid applications of your own. You will have solidified your understanding of the AngularJS language and will be more than capable of putting to real world use with immediate effect.

Mobile devices are now used for everything from banking to gaming – so user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) design has never been more important. If a website is difficult to navigate or the layout of an app is confusing, users will be gone in seconds. An in-depth understanding of mobile UI/UX design is critical for good mobile usability, for keeping your users engaged, and for ensuring your product stays relevant.
Make your Mobile UI Design Pop
Understand the Mobile UX Design Process
While UI and UX design are often bundled together as one, they are in fact two separate disciplines. UI design is centered on layout and the fine detail of how the user interacts with the product (i.e a slide vs. a simple tap on an app). UX design however is about the overall experience, the look and feel of the product, and how the user navigates through it from start to finish. Despite their differences the two go hand-in-hand, and an understanding of both is essential for seamless mobile usability. In short, mobile UI/UX design is one of the most important elements of any digital project.
