Starting with Gulp
The task manager for JavaScript development

Sometimes there's nothing more fun than sinking your teeth into a complex, challenging JavaScript build. Until you get so inundated with tiny, repetitive tasks that take up the majority of your coding time, that is. Enter Gulp; the toolkit that automates all the boring stuff, so you can build the cool stuff. It's going to make your builds so much better, and we're going to teach you how to use it...

Cut Out the Boring Bits!

  • Install, program, and configure Gulp to work for you
  • Manage JavaScript projects with Gulp
  • Leverage Gulp as a JavaScript build system
  • Create runnable 'builds' with a single command
  • Use Gulp to minify SASS files and JavaScript

This course was designed for developers who want to enhance their workflow. However if you work with JavaScript regularly, you need this course too. We'll show you how to use to this toolkit to eliminate the most time-consuming, monotonous and downright boring tasks... and you don't even need any Gulp experience to get started!

First we'll explore Gulp at a high level. You'll gain an understanding of what a build system is, what Gulp can do for you, and we'll install and configure gulp according to your own needs. Then, the course divides into two sections; Gulp for development and Gulp for production. In the former, you'll learn about pre-processing SASS, automating your builds, the much lauded 'watch' function and the live re-load function.

In the latter, we'll focus on production for JavaScript and CSS, and we'll teach you everything you need to know about generating sourcemaps. Once you've finished the last section, you'll know exactly how to use Gulp to get maximum efficiency and productivity from your builds. You'll also be ready to use this clever toolkit to manage your JavaScript projects, minify, rewrite and concatenate your code, and basically make your developing life a whole lot easier.

What is Gulp?

Gulp is a toolkit designed to automate time-consuming tasks in your development workflow, so you can stop focussing on the boring, repetitive 'to dos' and get back to building. It makes the development processes simple and efficient, with a quality ecosystem ensuring plugins stay simple and work as expected.

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

  • 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?

Backbone.js is a JavaScript framework designed for developing single page web applications and for synchronizing various elements of web apps. It was created by Jeremy Ashkenas (of CoffeeScript and Underscore.js fame) with the intention of giving developers the freedom to design the full experience of a web application. It helps keep business logic and user interface neatly separated. Backbone is praised for being lightweight and only depending on one JavaScript library.

WordPress Security : Secure Your Site Against Hackers!
Secure your whole life against cybercriminals

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:

  1. easily guessed or stolen usernames and password
  2. 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.

Complete Steemit Course: Earn Cryptocurrency For Free
Tips for a new social media platform

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.

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.

Machine Learning with Python
Linear Algebra, Natural Language and more

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.

Learn the New Future of Programming

  • Understand what machine learning is and what it can do
  • Discover how Python utilises machine learning
  • Build machine learning processing from the ground up
  • Delve into complex logic and data structures

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.

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.
