Swift is a relatively new programming language dedicated to all things Apple (iOS, MacOS etc.). It is considered the successor to C and Objective-C, taking the best elements of both and modernising them for safety and efficiency. It is a general purpose language and is designed to work with Apple's Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks. It is used for building apps for all Apple platforms.
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
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.

Erlang is a functional programming language originally developed by Ericsson to build software for its telecommunications products. It's completely different to most other programming languages out there, and is in fact more like an operating system than anything else. It can be used for a variety of tasks including monitoring systems and distributing databases, among others.
There are an endless number of programming languages out there, and new ones are added on an almost daily basis. To keep on top of the game and broaden your skill set, picking up a few of these new languages never hurts. Google Go (golang) is the programming language created by one of the largest technology names in the world – Google – so having Go in your arsenal is a surefire way to add to your coding credentials. This course will teach you everything you need to know about Go.

What About HTML5?
HTML5 will become the new HTML standard version in the coming years. To understand HTML5 you must have knowledge of HTML and how it works. HTML5 modifies HTML to allow you to create more modern websites.
Projects and Source Codes
You will learn the basics, then create real projects that use the skills you just learned so you can understand how HTML works in the real world. You will also get access to all lesson source codes so you can deconstruct each lesson -- another valuable learning and time saving tool.
When it comes to the world of technology, staying ahead of the curve is always a challenge. In the last year one aspect of this – the world wide web – has kicked up a gear with the introduction of HTML5, the newest version of the code that makes the web tick. If you learn HTML5 along with CSS3 (the next level of web design used on all modern websites), you'll have a recipe for success; and this course will show you how.

The only way to effectively learn HTML5 and CSS3 is by diving right in and building websites from the ground up. That's exactly what this course does. Designed for complete beginners, you'll create a complete website section by section during 35 lectures and 5 hours of content.
You'll start by becoming familiar with HTML tags and how they're used, followed by the use of attributes and common settings. Once you've got a handle on basic HTML, you'll move on to the fun stuff: CSS. You'll use CSS for fonts, colours, lists, navigation menus, and more, adding a new element to your website with each section. Links, layouts, tables, forms and videos are all covered too.
If you know how to use a web browser and a text editor, you're all set up for this course already. No extra software or tools are needed, and you can choose your preferred option of each to get going. By the time you finish, you'll know everything you need to know to create beautiful, functional, easy to use websites of any kind.
About HTML5 and CSS3
HTML or Hyper Text Mark-up Language is the language used for presenting websites and web content. HTML5 is the latest version, made official by the World Wide Web Consortium in 2014. Having a good grasp of HTML means you'll be able to create, present and edit a whole variety of content on the web.
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) essentially 'enhances' HTML, giving developers and users more control over how pages and content is displayed. It is responsible for creating more visually engaging web pages, applications and interfaces. CSS3 is the latest version, and has many more extended features than previous versions – although it is backwards compatible.
With over 13 hours of video content, you can be sure you'll learn everything you need without having to read hundreds of pages of text. No eBook here, just great video content.
If you have ever wanted to become a web developer, then you know you need to know both CSS and CSS3. It's your choice how you learn it. You can read through a textbook or eBook, or you can have your own personal tutor showing you how to do everything every step of the way. That's what this course is all about.
How the Course is Taught
This course is taught via a step-by-step tutorial system. You will start with tutorials for beginners who are new to CSS and CSS3 programming and move through progressively more difficult skills, including everything you need to know to build a fully functional, modern and sleek website.
There are well over 11 hours of video lectures in this course. It is estimated that you would spend anywhere from 30 - 100 hours in total after viewing all the lectures to practice and master each skill on your own.
Why Take this Course?
You should take this course because it is comprehensive, easy to follow, inexpensive, fun and exciting! Web development is a huge industry, and if you really want to become an app developer, it starts with CSS and CSS3.
This easy to follow course teaches beginning web developers what you need to know to begin using Ajax, jQuery and JSON in the real world. Our approach is to teach them all in one course so you can understand the entire process of developing with these technologies instead of learning one, then struggling to understand how it works with other technologies to produce something useful.
PHP Object Oriented Programming is now the gold standard expected by a large number of companies (and especially among e-commerce websites). The problem? There are never enough programmers out there who really, really know what they’re doing with PHP OOP.
