Starting with Gulp
Automate your Javascript workflow with Gulp

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
  • Rewrite HTML files to reference concatenated, minified JavaScript and CSS
  • Concatenate all your JavaScript into a single, downloadable file
  • Automatically build a JavaScript project with the 'watch' feature
  • Let Gulp do all of your mundane JavaScript tasks!

Use Gulp as a JavaScript Build System

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. It's intended use is for JavaScript builds and front end web development, and it uses a code-over-configuration approach.

Starting with Backbone.js
Improve JS structure for your web apps

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!
Online security

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

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.

  • 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
Cutting edge machine learning training

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.

Starting with Angular 4 (updated for Version 4.3)
Will be updated regularly as Angular changes

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

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 as the topic for an entire new section in this course update. Forms are a pillar of web-based development and we feel this new 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 4, 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 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.

Angular for All

  • Understand Angular and how it can make you a better developer
  • Code an Angular project with an online IDE
  • Learn to code with TypeScript
  • Utilise dependency injection to keep your applications lean
  • Implement services in an Angular application
  • Get to grips with component paradigms, pipes, data binding, component nesting and more

Master Frameworks

This Angular 4 online course was designed for those who already know a little about creating web Uis with JavaScript tools. Those who have experience programming with a common object oriented scripting language will also be at an advantage. However, absolutely no Angular experience is needed to keep up with the lessons.

What does the course cover? Everything from Angular's best practices in building components, templates, services, routes and modules to designing and building all of the above. You'll also learn how to use templates to create your application's user interface, how to extend HTML with directives, pipes and data binding, and how routing is done with modular speech.

Each of the most important features of Angular 4 have a dedicated section in this course, along with practical exercises to compound your learning and helpful guidance from our expert tutor every step of the way. Don't worry, we've covered all angles so you can learn what you need to know, and fast.

Whether you're an IT professional, an aspiring web, mobile or service app developer, a tester, a UI designer or an architect, this course will get you right up to speed on Angular 4. 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 4?

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.

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.

Scala Programming Language
Learn the Scala programming language from scratch

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.

Learn MongoDB From Scratch
Everything you need to master MongoDB

Data is a very popular buzzword in the technology industry right now. As more and more people move their activities online, the data companies and websites collect on them will become even more relevant. And guess what that means? Programmers and developers who know their way around databases – and more importantly, who can actually interpret and build things from them – will be in high demand. MongoDB is one of the most dynamic databases out there, so getting to grips with it sooner rather than later means you’ll stay well ahead of the curve.

Approach Data in New Exciting Ways

This MongoDB online course has been designed for web developers, web designers, web architects, testers, site administrators, and pretty much anyone who already has a working knowledge of web development. Although it’s not vital, knowing how to build web UI components and a familiarity with NoSQL persistence will help. This course is absolutely not limited to developers only, however.

The goal is to provide a solid foundation of MongoDB knowledge. To get you up and running on building your own web apps with MongoDB at their core, and to help you understand the capabilities, functionality and limitations of what this database can do.

You’ll learn how to configure and run MongoDB, start importing data, and then quickly get stuck into creating new databases. You’ll pick up Mongo Query Language commands and dive into one of MongoDB’s most powerful features, the Aggregation Framework. You’ll work through detailed examples to gain an understanding of the various pieces of the puzzle, all the while learning about this database’s scaling, replication, and sharding abilities.

By the end of this course, those examples you’ve been working on will all fit together to form a complete, working web application that’s fully integrated with MongoDB. And not only that, you’ll have the confidence, knowledge and practice needed to start working on your own MongoDB projects straight away.

About MongoDB

MongoDB is an open source database with a document-oriented data model. It differs from a relational database in that instead of storing data in tables and rows, it stores JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas. Because of this, it lends developers the ability to create applications rooted in data in ways they never could before.

Introduction to Docker
Deliver blazing fast web apps with Docker

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.

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!

About Docker

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.

So What Is a Game Engine?

A game engine is framework which facilitates the kinds of tasks which need to be done when writing a game. So what are the kinds of tasks we want to do? We would probably want to display images on the screen (in game terminology, an image which is displayed on the screen is called a sprite). We may need to draw menus or text on the screen. We might want to organise our sprites so that some are behind others. Often games use realistic physic so objects collide or fall with gravity. A game engine will help us do these things and many more.

Learn PHP Model View Controller Pattern (PHP MVC)
MVC is important for all PHP developers to know

In this course you will learn how PHP Model View Controllers (PHP MVC) work and how to create one yourself.

Using the open source and well documented PHP MVC Project as a starting point, you will learn how to incorporate Model View Controllers into your development and solidify your skills by building your own MVC based framework.

What Is Model-View-Control?

The Model-View-Control (MVC) pattern, originally formulated in the late 1970s, is a software architecture pattern built on the basis of keeping the presentation of data separate from the methods that interact with the data. In theory, a well-developed MVC system should allow a front-end developer and a back-end developer to work on the same system without interfering, sharing, or editing files either party is working on.

Even though MVC was originally designed for personal computing, it has been adapted and is widely used by web developers due to its emphasis on separation of concerns, and thus indirectly, reusable code. The pattern encourages the development of modular systems, allowing developers to quickly update, add, or even remove functionality.

In this course you will learn how to create and implement a button that allows users to log in to a website using their Twitter account, effectively bypassing the need to fill out yet another registration form. Basic programming knowledge is recommended for this course, but even beginners can follow along and develop this integration. This course is also great for entrepreneurs who are building a website for themselves.

How Does This Benefit a Website?

Social logins are all the rage these days, and for good reason -- the signup you receive from social logins is up to 30% higher than the standard signup form.

The benefit to websites is the ability to have all of your users connect automatically to social media sites to share your content.

Why Should You Learn It?

Social media login integrations are becoming a much more important part of standard practice in web development. If you can't integrate social media logins you're being left in the dust by your competitors who can.

Other Important Social Media Integrations

Google and Facebook are the other most common social media integrations you'll need to know, and we have courses on how to do that as well.
