The primary objectives of this course include:
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.
In the last few decades, the web revolution has been taking over every aspect of our life. From ordering groceries to everyday banking to getting our daily news – there is hardly anything which is untouched by the latest web technologies.
In this day and age – every business large or small needs to have a web presence and tell the world about themselves. Even individuals want to express themselves by using an online medium like blogs or personal websites.
Ability to build and run these sites has become an essential skill. Of course, we can hire a designer and web developer and pay them top dollar to build our site? Even if can afford them – what happens if we need to make inevitable changes to it or refresh the look? Does this necessarily need to become a lifelong expense?
NO! modern content management systems make it very easy for anyone with little to no knowledge about technology to build, run and maintain a very attractive and functional website. One such CMS is Joomla – it is open source and completely free. And what is more – it is very mature and widely used to build thousands of web properties on the internet.
As such learning Joomla CMS will also give you added skills which are very valuable in the job market. The median income of a web developer in the US is around $73000 per year.
Those are only a few of the reasons why you must enroll in this course and take your career to the next level.
MySQL is one of the most famous systems whose primary role is managing databases.The main goal of this course is the acquaintance with the basic concepts of databases.The acquired knowledge will enable you to practically use MySQL servers.

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.
If you’re looking at this page, you’ve probably had ‘learn how to code’ at the top of your to-do list forever. Coding is the future, and the technology industry is crying out for good programmers fluent in a range of languages. With that in mind, we’ve created this bundle for people just like you. Whether you’re a complete newcomer to programming or you already have some experience but want to expand your knowledge, this bundle will set you up for a career as a professional programmer.
With access for life, you can learn at your own pace and complete lessons according to your own schedule. Whether you take your time or power through at breakneck speed, you can rest assured you’re learning everything you need to know.
This bundle includes the following courses:
You'll also learn C# via Unity 3D game development, and the new Dart programming language from Google.
Keeping on top of the latest progress in web development can be daunting. There are always new languages to learn, new applications to create with them, and endless possibilities. Learning web components with Dart is an excellent place to start, however. Whether you're a coding veteran or just dipping your toes, Dart will massively streamline your web development projects by eliminating endless lines of code, implementing complex features with a few clicks, and cutting down on the time and effort it takes to create top notch web components.

Master Dart Programming in Just a Few Hours
Over the course of 61 lectures and 4 hours of concept you will learn all the ins and outs of the Dart as well as how to create and implement web components using this programming language. You'll cover syntax and usage first and after establishing the groundwork, you'll move on to the nitty gritty of web components. That means learning all about their origins, advantages, features and proper use.
Following that, you'll work on a project that will allow you to put all that theory to practice, creating real world web applications using Dart. When finished, you'll have enough hands-on experience with Dart to be able to apply it to any relevant web development project.
Dart is a new programming language designed specifically for building web, server and mobile apps. It is class based and object oriented, but easy to follow. A wide range of tools, libraries and documentation makes it versatile and perfectly suited for modern web applications.
