Learn PHP Model View Controller Pattern (PHP MVC)
Hours: 4.5
Lectures: 32

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.

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.

Professional Python Web Development with Flask
Hours: 15
Lectures: 107
This course will teach you, assuming no prior coding knowledge, how to develop back end web applications the way professional coders do in the top internet startups. How do I know this? Because I've been leading tech teams in both large enterprise as well as startup companies in New York City for the past 15 years.

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.

About HTML and CSS

HTML, or Hyper Text Markup Language, is the code used to define colours, graphics, hyperlinks, paragraphs, and other simple elements of a website. It was developed by the founder of the web, Tim Berners Lee, back in 1990.

CSS, or Cascading Style Sheets, define the more advanced aspects of websites like fonts, background images, positioning and much more. It is a style language that defines HTML layout, so the two are intrinsically linked. Both form the basic frameworks for all websites on the internet.

WordPress Security : Secure Your Site Against Hackers!
Hours: 2.5
Lectures: 35

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.
