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?
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:
- easily guessed or stolen usernames and password
- 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.
Steemit is a social media and blogging platform that pays you for posting content.
So, you do what you already do on Facebook, on Instagram, or on LinkedIn, etc. – you post content, you share content, and you comment. However, Steemit PAYS you for doing just that.
Take a look at Steemit. You’ll see a page of posts about anything: travel, food, business, pets, etc. They're earning hundreds or thousands of dollars.
Steemit leverages a revolutionary new technology called the blockchain.
The blockchain is the technology that underpins Bitcoin – the first ever cryptocurrency. In the case of Bitcoin, no 3rd parties (banks, governments, exchanges, etc.) are needed to make transactions – no bank fees, no exchange fees, no central banks, no uncertainty over government interference with the money supply, etc.
And similarly with Steemit, no centralized authority is needed. So no ads, no selling of your personal information, no censorship, etc.
The Steem blockchain protocol, in addition to being able to store value ($$$), can also store content. And it rewards people for creating content, curating content, and even commenting on content with its cryptocurrency Steem.
There are no ads, so where does the money come from?
The Steem protocol, just like that Bitcoin protocol, creates money out of thin air.
Since the decoupling of the US dollar to gold by Richard Nixon in 1971, a system of national fiat currencies has been used. Since the cost of producing any denomination of a national currency is negligible, all money is in fact created out of thin air. However, people believe in a currency’s value and trade with it accordingly. So a US dollar is worth what it is.
It’s the same with cryptocurrencies: their value is derived from how much people believe in them, or are prepared to pay for them. Bitcoin, Ethereum, Steem, and all other cryptocurrencies are traded everyday. Their values go up and down according to the irrefutable laws of supply and demand.
Steemit provides you with a chance to earn rewards in a well regarded cryptocurrency without having to invest any money.
Nothing I recommend you do on this course will cost you a penny. Everything I recommend on this course will earn you money.
C Programming Language
One of the behemoths of the coding world, C has been around for, oh, around 50 years or so. Often perceived as one of the most difficult languages to master, any programmer who can list C on their resume is sure to carve a good career in the tech industry. Want to be one of those people? Keep reading...
Sharpen Up Your C Skills
- Build a solid foundation in the C language
- Learn to read and write C code
- Test your skills with challenges after each lesson
- Gain expertise in computer programming
Speak Fluent C
This course is aimed at anyone with a desire to learn the C, with the goal of building a solid knowledge of the language. Some previous programming experience is helpful, but not necessary.
After starting with a general introduction and an overview of C language fundamentals, this course continually progresses into more advanced topics covering the breadth of the C spectrum. With an emphasis on hands-on training, from module 2 onwards you'll use code walk throughs and post-lecture challenges to compound and test your skills. Code and code comments are included with each module too, so you'll have plenty of resources to help you learn.
By the end of this course, you'll be well on your way to achieving fluency in the C language, and you'll be comfortable both reading and writing C. You'll know how to build basic programs with C and will be well equipped to progress to more complex projects.
What is C?
C is a general purpose programming language developed in the early 1970s by Dennis Ritchie. It's one of the most widely used programming languages of all time, originally developed for implementing the UNIX operating system. Nowadays it's largely used for developing system applications, database systems, graphics packages, operation system development and much more. It's a structure oriented language, meaning its prime focus is on functions and it follows a 'top down' approach.
If you’re plugged into the tech industry, you’ll know that two things have been making consistent waves in many areas over the past few years; machine learning and Python. What happens when you combine the new gold standard programming language with the most significant tech development in areas such as financial trading, online search, digital marketing and even data and personal security (among others)? Great things, that’s what. This course will show you what’s what, and get you started on becoming a machine learning guru.

Increase Your Python Expertise
If you have a desire to learn machine learning concepts and have some previous programming or Python experience, this course is perfect for you. If you’re more of a beginner than an intermediate, don’t worry; each module starts with theory to explain upcoming concepts. Once you’re comfortable, you’ll put your knowledge into practice with a code walk through.
The goal of this course is to build procedural machine learning from the ground up. Writing processing from scratch allows students to gain a more in-depth insight into data processing, and as each machine learning app is created, explanations and comments are provided to help students understand why things are being done in certain ways. Each code walk through also shows the building process in real time.
The course begins with an introduction to machine learning concepts, after which you’ll build your first machine learning application. Following that, we look at data analysis, linear algebra, natural language processing and clustering, all within the context of Python. At the end of the course, you’ll be issued with a certificate of completion and will have gained a full introduction into the world of machine learning with Python.
What is Machine Learning?
Machine learning is a method of data analysis that essentially allows computers to ‘learn’ on their own without being explicitly programmed. For example, when you stop scrolling through Facebook to read a friend or a page’s post, algorithms automatically work to make sure you’ll see more content from those sources earlier in your news feed in future.
More and more often these days, we're hearing news reports of large scale security threats to highly sensitive computer systems. Whether it's a major website getting hacked, personal information stolen from company databases or even cyber identity theft, there is always one common weak link; unsafe code. Enter Rust; the brainchild of Mozilla that promises fast, efficient, and memory safe systems programming. Sound intriguing? This course will teach you everything you need to know...

Systems Programming Made Safe
This course is aimed at intermediate coders with some previous programming knowledge. If you're comfortable working with a code editor and want to add another tool to your programming skill set, then this course is perfect for you.
After starting with an extensive overview of Rust fundamentals, you'll hit the ground running and dive into more advanced features like vectors, generics, tuples, ownership borrowing and crates. Module 'challenges' throughout the course put your knowledge to the test – but if you need a push in the right direction, video walk throughs and code downloads are available.
By the end of this course you'll have a thorough understanding of Rust, of memory management in general and of systems programming specifically. You'll be well placed to begin or further your knowledge of similar languages like C++, and you can impress potential employers with your expertise in safe code.
What is Rust?
Rust is a general purpose, low level programming language created by Mozilla. It was designed as a systems programming language with an emphasis on being safe, concurrent and practical. Its syntax is similar to C++, but it practices better memory safety while maintaining performance. Developers praise it for its speed and safety. It was recently awarded the title of 'most loved programming language' in the Stack Overflow Developer Survey.
There are few languages that are equally capable of building simple, one-line expressions and robust, high performance systems. There are even less languages that can function as both object-oriented and functional. Yet Scala, otherwise known as the 'scaleable' language, can do both impressively well. And guess what? It's pretty easy to learn. Interested? Here's what our Introduction to Scala online course will teach you...
Combine OOP and Functional Programming
• Gain basic proficiency in Scala
• Get to grips with functional programming
• Learn a derivative language of Java
• Understand how to scale your programs efficiently
• Add a new language to your skill set!
Build Scaleable Programs
If you don't know Java or functional programming, don't worry; Scala is a perfect transitional language for both. This online course will guide you every step of the way, with mini-projects at the end of each section to compound your learning and a clear breakdown of the various components that make up the language. Previous programming experience will certainly help, but it's not totally necessary.
You'll start right at the beginning by installing Scala and and getting an overview of the variables, constants and string manipulations. From then on you'll learn the various facets of Scala section by section, using the Eclipse Scala IDE throughout. Among other things, you'll learn the language fundamentals, control flow, functions, classes, file I/O and exception handling.
If you want to learn Java, learn function programming, or just add a new language to your arsenal, this is the course for you. By the end, you'll have gained basic proficiency in Scala and be able to demonstrate an understanding of functional programming.
As one of the most popular functional programming languages out there and one of the most versatile languages across the board, learning Scala is a smart way to upgrade your skills as well as transitioning from object-oriented to functional styles.
What is Scala?
Scala is an object-oriented programming language specially designed to be scaleable. However, it is also a functional language, seamlessly blending the most important elements of both for a powerful do-it-all tool that can be used for one-line expressions or 'mission critical' systems alike. It has a concise syntax, and makes an excellent stepping stone to Java.

Docker has taken the development world by storm in recent years, being the first effective tool that wraps up a piece of software in a complete file system package, installs it on a server, and runs it repeatedly. However, until recently it was difficult to do this with micro-architectures composed of numerous containers that all need to work in conjunction with one another. Enter Docker Compose, the handiest tool to hit the tech world since Docker. Here’s everything you need to know...
Learn Docker Compose Inside Out
- Define multi-container application environments
- Create flexible, customisable environments and networks
- Transform an existing application into a fully Docker-ised environment
- Enhance your Docker experience
Make Your Docker Experience Even More Stress-Free
This Docker Compose online course will make you a DC expert, learning the tool from top to bottom. It has been specifically designed for those that already know Docker, so you’ll skip the baby steps and dive straight in. 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.
