Docker, Apache Mesos & DCOS
Run and manage you own IaaS cloud datacenter

It’s been a few years since Marc Andreessen, the found of Mosaic and Netscape - coined the phrase software is eating the world. But indeed it is true today. , the idea that “every company needs to become a software company” is considered almost a cliché. No matter your industry, you’re expected to be reimagining your business to make sure you’re not the next local taxi company or hotel chain caught completely off guard by your equivalent of Uber or Airbnb.

Doing business in the 21st century means embracing a world where software quite literally powers everything—from televisions to cars, and from social media to banking systems.

In the mean time Software development has seen a paradigm shift in the last few decades.

From the beginning of computing era in the 1960s up to late 1990s, the software was built by relatively small teams. These teams used large monolithic software stacks to build relatively simple and smaller applications which were used by 1 to a few tens of people. These applications were deployed on a central network server which the users connected to via their terminals and used the application.

The current era is all about ubiquitous connectivity and ever increasing adoption of mobile computing. To cater to these demands - the modern mobile apps and web applications are reaching global scale and billions of users. These app and web applications are built by larger teams which are geographically distributed. They build those large applications by stitching together a collection of services, APIs or microservices.

These services use a variety of stacks and are independent of each other. The services run on clusters spanning thousands or tens of thousands of servers or nodes. And the consumers use these applications over the cloud and the public internet using their mobile, tablet and desktop devices.

Deployment, management and operationalizing these large complex infrastructures is a daunting task. Containerization of the apps and services help to simplify these tasks. But even containers leave A bulk of administration tasks for deploying the latest application code, upgrading the servers, mapping the service end points, etc. to the user and DevOps engineers.

Won't it be great if we were able to aggregate and combine all the computing power available to us in our datacenter and treat it as one large computer?

What if we had a smart operating system which could manage our entire data center just like Linux or MacOS or Windows can manage our personal computers. Whether we are managing two virtual nodes or 10,000 Of them - Wouldn’t it be nice just to instruct our collection of servers or our datacenter – hey datacenter I want to run a web application and a database? Here is the code – and here are the commands to run these applications – please figure out which nodes can run these applications; deploy them and run them. By the way, if any of those nodes die – please make sure you move my application to another healthy node so that the end users do not experience any disruption.
Then based on the requirement of a particular app, a scheduler can dynamically allocate resources to the application. This will make the whole system much more efficient. We will be able to free up resources and drive the utilization up. This methodology has all kinds of benefits from saved costs to more uptime of the application and less administrative overhead.

This is exactly what Docker, Apache Mesos, and DC/OS provide.

Docker is open source engine that can help you automate the deployment of applications inside software containers. Is was released in March 2013 and has been gaining popularity ever since. It has over 100 million downloads, and over 75000 applications are running as dockerized applications – that is a LOT!

Apache Mesos is an open source cluster manager that provides efficient resource isolation and sharing across distributed applications or frameworks.

Mesosphere DC/OS is an enterprise grade datacenter-scale operating system, providing a single platform for running containers, big data, and distributed apps in production.

DC/OS is built on the Apache Mesos core and provides newer technology including the native container-orchestration, Marathon application platform, intuitive user interfaces and much much more.

Knowledge and experience about Docker, Apache Mesos and DC/OS could be very valuable for your career. The latest stats and figures show some amazing numbers like jobs requiring these skill sets pay higher than most of the jobs posted on public job boards within the US and annual salaries for professionals could be as high as $120,000. That is the exact reason why you must enroll in this course and take your career to the next level.

As the title suggests – this course aims to provide you enough knowledge about Docker, Apache Mesos, and DC/OS so that you can run and operate your own data center using these components together. But specifically:

  • You will learn about containerization of apps, the plethora of benefits and leverages offered by containers and Docker.
  • You will also be able to able to install and run your Docker instances and run your containerized apps on it.
    With the prospect of making software deployment faster and increase user reach, you will be able to employ DC/OS to manage your data centers better.
  • You will learn about running your application and services within DC/OS in a load balanced manner.
  • You will be able to install new services and packages to deploy complex applications within your DC/OS cluster
  • You will learn about administrative tasks and operational utilities you can use to manage your DC/OS cluster.
  • Using Docker, Apache Mesos & DCOS you will be able to make your business operations effective and efficient. These tools will result in optimized resource utilization, automated self-healing and scalability and ultimately real and tangible cost savings.
  • With more effectiveness and efficiency, in turn, you will be able to muster depth, scalability, and expanse in your software/ App projects.

Programming is becoming more and more popular all around the world.

Programming provides extreme amounts of power and flexibility, because you can take control of your computer's actual power, and you can develop your own systems and prototypes.

Python is becoming especially popular, because it's extremely user-friendly whilst still maintaining a lot of the power that other, more complex, programming languages offer. Additionally, Python has a huge community, which means all sorts of modern projects, such as Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, etc. have been develop for the Python community to use, which makes implementing these sorts of advanced techniques extremely easy (sometimes only 1-2 lines of code).

Employers love employees that can program, because they can go out and quickly produce results or create prototypes. The ability to program will not only open you up to new opportunities, but it will also become a better logical thinker, since computers operate on logical statements, so a good programmer has a natural thought flow that is very logical.

Starting with Angular 5
Master this popular JavaScript based framework
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

Introduction to Kubernetes using Docker
Build projects on Google Cloud

Docker dramatically changed (for the better) the lives of those who transfer, install and manage software applications on a regular basis. It made the process much less complicated and virtually eliminated any stress involved. Now, Kubernetes has made the whole thing even easier (yes, it’s possible). Want to learn how to containerize your application and then automate it from start to finish? This is the course for you...

Understand the World of Microservices

  • Install Docker and a Kubernetes cluster from scratch
  • Learn how to run and manage containers effectively
  • Create Kubernetes pods, deployments and services
  • Build Docker images and configure Docker Hub from scratch
  • Deploy a multi-component software application efficiently and easily

Develop, Ship and Run Applications with Ease

This course is suitable for everyone, from complete beginners right up to expert computer nerds. All you need is a fast internet connection, a credit card to set up a free trial on Google Cloud (no extra cost), and a basic working knowledge of modern technology.

You’ll start off by getting familiar with Google Cloud, Docker and Kubernetes, learning what they do and how you’ll be using them. Then you’ll take an in-depth look at the two most important tools, Docker and Kubernetes. Once you’ve gotten a good grasp on how each one works, you’ll move on to the course projects. 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.

Learn Swift TableViews By Building An iOS App
A Foundational iOS Skill

UITableViews are the cornerstone of any iOS app. Virtually every iOS app in the iTunes App Store uses tableviews. In this course, you'll learn how to implement tableviews in Swift by creating a simple iOS app.

A few of the skills you'll learn are:

  • Adding a UITableView to an existing app
  • Supplying data to a tableview
  • Deleting table cells
  • Rearranging table cells
  • Segueing to a different scene
  • Autolayout

Instead of just learning tableviews, you'll create a real iOS app. The app will have a listing of the layers of the atmosphere. It also doesn't start as a tableview. We get to add the tableview after the app has been created.

Everything is done in Swift.

If you've been wanting to learn tableviews or don't yet have this foundational iOS skill, this is the course for you.

Starting with Backbone.js
Powerful flexible library for JavaScript development

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
