What you'll learn
Please note: this class is for the busy developer who wants to maximise her time and advance as fast as possible. My lectures are highly polished and focus on the essentials so you can code for yourself ASAP. As professional developers, we understand that only through actively building something is it possible to advance our programming skills. Studying software engineering theory without immediate practice is hardly effective.
Dive into modern application development while you build a bookmarking and scraping website from scratch. Understand the whole development process that goes from an idea to a plan to the implementation of a multifaceted application.
Get a profound understanding of many important frameworks and tools in one single class.
This class offers a unique distraction-free learning experience that allows you to start coding anytime just by clicking a link.
It ships with a virtual machine image that has all requirements installed and a tutoring application that guides you through the course.
Instead of wasting your time with installation or configuration issues that regular courses require, you just open your console and type in vagrant up. I developed a tutoring application that guides you through the lectures and manages your source code and exercises. You start coding just by clicking a link and having the tutor taking care of the rest.
Most courses either focus on too much theory without practice or are not more than a guided hacking tutorial ignoring deeper concepts. My class delivers the material in a concise form by teaching just enough essentials so you can start coding on your own.
Why watch hours of videos and forget most of it when I can get the same knowledge in a fraction of the time?
This course will take you from an idea to a complete application. We start with the requirements of our application that we have gathered with our fictive client. We plan the development as we would do in a real life software company.
Then we develop each part of the application. We start with the frontend that we implement in two steps. First, we use Bootstrap to layout the website. Second, we make the website interactive using Knockout.js.
After that we move on to the backend side and talk about REST API development. Using Spring Boot and Java we demonstrate how to create an API quickly that clients consume.
In the final part of this course, we add a web scraping service to our application. We gain an understanding of the microservices architecture and learn how to increase modularity by taking advantage of messaging with RabbitMQ.
I developed this course especially for the busy developer who wants to maximise the time spent on learning.
By taking advantage of virtual machines, git and our unique tutoring application, you can jump right into coding anytime and anywhere you want. Develop worry-free by quickly applying new insights and when done just move ahead. I believe the best way to learn and understand software development is to coding and tinker with applications and frameworks as much as possible.
As a bonus for my students I personally answer every open question you may have in the forum regarding the course material. My motivation is to help you succeed!
