"Become An Android Developer From Scratch” is designed to be the best first step to launching your career as an Android Developer. Whether you've never programmed before or are coming to mobile development for the first time, if you're truly inspired to learn Android Development, this is where you need to start.

This course has been in development for over two years, continuously perfected through research and testing in training bootcamps throughout the US. It represents a collaboration between a professional educator with over 20 years of experience in helping people learn and a professional mobile developer who has helped companies like Sony, Verizon, and nVidia build stunning mobile applications.

Starting with how the Java programming language works and progressing all the way to advanced Android concepts, you will get expertly produced instruction, visually descriptive explanations of deep concepts, screencasts that talk you through not just the “how” but also the “why,” and code challenges to test yourself and mark your progress.

Here’s what students are saying:

“Very clean and well done. Covers everything that you need to know for getting started whether you know how to code starting out or not. If you are at a loss trying to start making android apps this is the course for you.”

“I like this course, this would transform any normal person to a full fledged android developer.”

“This one is, by far, the most comprehensive, easy-to-follow, and genuinely well put together one of the bunch.”

“Inspirational! - got me over the hump (complete android beginner)”

Why it’s working...

One of the things we're most excited to offer with this course is access to the inner workings of the mind of a professional mobile developer. Throughout the course you will be able to listen in as our Learning Scientist teases apart all the thoughts that run through a professional mobile developer’s mind as he’s writing the code you will learn to create. It’s like sitting down in a movie with the writer, director, and lead actor. But in this case, it’s all in support of your transformation from novice to professional.

You will build several applications throughout the course, and the starting point for each project (as well as solutions to each challenge) will be available for download. You will also get all the visuals and info-graphics used throughout the course for reference and study.

"Become An Android Developer From Scratch" will give you a new, richer perspective on how mobile devices work. After you’ve completed this rigorous, challenging, and super fun course, you will be able to create your own apps, deploy to the Google Play store, and even interview for a job anywhere in the world.

The real value...

The most important thing you will get from completing this course is the confidence to say “I’m an Android Developer!” You’ll be able to interact with other students and professionals in the Android community with pride and self-assuredness. You’ll also become an independent learner, able to discern where to go for information and how to continue advancing your skills.

No course is going to make you into an expert. It’s up to you to challenge yourself and find your path to making the apps you dream about. Become an Android Developer from Scratch is the best place to begin. Are you ready to get started?

QUITE POSSIBLY THE FASTEST WAY TO LEARN HOW TO BUILD PROFESSIONAL QUALITY WEBSITES FOR BEGINNERS, NON-PROGRAMMERS AND ENTREPRENEURS

So you want to learn how to build websites but you're not quite sure how.

Welllllll, you could do like me and spend months learning every knook and cranny of HTML and CSS before you even put up your first webpage. This could lead to frustration, feelings of being overwhelmed and highly increases the chances that you'll give up without a site to show for it.

OR….. YOU COULD START LEARNING BY DOING AND HAVE YOUR FIRST WEBSITE UP THIS WEEK.

If you want to learn something fast you need to jump in and start getting your hands dirty from the beginning. Have you ever noticed that you don't really learn something until you actually try to do it, and experience it firsthand? Well that's exactly what we'll do in this course. You'll learn by building your first website this week.

And don't worry if HTML and CSS or websites in general intimidate you. Learning to build websites is actually a lot easier than you think...if you are taught correctly. And I'll be here with you the whole time. I personally respond to and answer all questions you and other students have.

Through project-based learning and leveraging powerful, free tools that exist online, I will teach you what you need to know in order to create rock star sites fast and not get frustrated trying to learn HTML and CSS FOR-EV-ERRRRR (insert Sandlot voice here) without having a site up to show for it.

The simple truth is that most courses and instructors out there try to teach you too much too early, don't teach things in the right order, or sometimes it even seems like they purposefully make the material too hard.

With this course I PROMISE YOU that you will learn to build websites and put them online in less than 10 hours of work total.

Just look at what students are saying:

"First 7 lessons done and I can actually build something and understand it! First million I make will because you came at the right time! Timing couldn't of been better." - Tony Berardi

"I managed to build a single page web for one of my clients and got some $ out of it from what I learned in this course." --Jay Mayu

"The course was a great way to learn how to code in HTML and CSS fast and efficiently. I really enjoyed how helpful the instructors were." - Jonathan Barra

"I thought the course was very refreshing, fast paced and exciting. I really enjoyed the hands on aspect of the course where you can change something then and there and you can see the results instantly." -Jimmy Smith

“I've seen (almost) all the videos on Bootstrap 2 and 3 which are available on YouTube and I can guarantee that the ones you posted are among the best. I am very grateful for your "little big things" that you've taught me." - Rac Santos

What you will learn

- CORE FUNDAMENTALS: I'll teach you how to use a text-editor and the fundamentals of HTML and CSS so that you can put up any site you want and be ready to experiment with the most-advanced concepts.

- RAPID DEVELOPMENT: By learning to use powerful frameworks and tools such as Bootstrap, Font-Awesome, Google Forms and more, you'll be able to put up sexy, startup quality sites fast

- HTML5 & CSS3 to make your site look fresh and new. You'll learn the rules and practices of the newest languages. No outdated teachings or 1990s looking sites here!

- RESPONSIVE DESIGN: Designing for web is no longer for just your computer or laptop. We'll teach you responsive design so your site looks great on all devices.

- NO STAKES PRACTICING: how to use browser tools to play around and see live changes on sites so that you can learn faster and explore the HTML and CSS of the best looking websites

- BEAUTIFUL VISUALS: You'll learn how to include professional style graphics and icons in your site for free

- INSTANT DEPLOYMENT: how to host your site live online QUICKLY

When you're done with this course...

Practical PHP: Master the Basics and Code Dynamic Websites

Code Your Very Own Dynamic Websites by Learning PHP Through Real-World Application & Examples

Created by Brad Hussey - Marketing Consultant at FreelancingFreedom.com

"]

Students: 226328, Price: Free

Learn How to Code Dynamic Websites with PHP 5+ for absolute beginners! 

This course is a total beginners guide to coding dynamic websites with PHP so you need no prior knowledge or experience with PHP — although, it is a good idea if you know some HTML & CSS. (My beginner's guide Build a Website from Scratch with HTML & CSS will teach you everything you need to know about HTML & CSS.) 

Practical Hands-on Approach 

My approach with this course, like many of my courses, is to take a practical "hands on" approach. While there will be some theory involved — every single lesson requires you to get your hands dirty and exercise what you've learned in that specific lesson. I find this to be the best approach, because you're able to retain much more of what you learned, and therefore, get up and running with maximizing your practical knowledge of PHP quickly! 

Why Should I Learn PHP? 

So — why learn PHP? Well, PHP is a very powerful scripting language used by millions of websites. Some of the most popular websites and frameworks utilize PHP to build their dynamic websites. PHP works very well with HTML, and therefore will allow you to start coding dynamic websites quickly without having to learn some of the more complicated scripting languages out there. 

You Will Love This Course 

I think you're going to love this course, and you're going to especially love what you're going to learn. When I first started learning PHP, I couldn't wait to start implementing what I learned into my websites! I think you'll feel the same. 

It's Totally Free! 

Also, I am excited to be offering this course absolutely free for three reasons: 

  1. I don't want a purchasing decision to get in the way of you learning what I have to offer in this course.

  2. I want as many people as possible to be able access the content.

  3. I want to give you learning material so good that it should cost money.

The Final Project 

Throughout the course you will be building a handful of dynamic PHP examples, but in the last section of the course, we will build a dynamic website for a (fictional) restaurant. 

So, I invite you to join me in learning how to Code Dynamic Websites with PHP! 

Let's do this.

  • Hands-on Sessions - I guide you through sessions building apps and writing code snippets clearly explaining every line of code.
  • Drills - Easy-to-moderate beginner level exercises in which you get the opportunity to practice what you've learnt and verify the same.
  • Elaborate Videos - Learn Android concepts in a thorough manner, I've made sure that all WHYs and HOWs you need to know are covered.

Since this course is for beginners, I highly recommend you to take this course sequentially. You can pick on random videos, but remember - the complexity increases down the road so it is imperative that you take them one by one.

What makes me qualified?

A polite request

Please watch the presentation video BEFORE joining the course; If you don't like what you see (or my accent at the time of recording) please DO NOT enroll. I've seen many people enrolling (since, you know, it's FREE) and then leaving negative scores because they didn't fancy the accent of the instructor or because the course was "too basic" (even though it's basically written everywhere that this is a foundation course for absolute beginners).
So, don't be that guy/girl, and join only if you believe this course is right for you. If you don't like how the course is structured or its content please do  not hesitate to leave a negative score but in doing so add a comment explaining your reasons; This will help the instructor. A negative score without any comment or feedback is not useful to anyone and detrimental to other potential students.

This course was made in 2015 and, apart from a few tweaks in 2016 it hasn't seen further updates (that is one of the reasons why it's now offered for free). So, you won't find things like CSS Flexbox/Grid here. Though, its content is still super relevant nowadays and important in building a solid foundation in Front-End Development. No matter what latest technology you want to learn, you need the basics first and this is exactly what this course is for!

- What is this course all about?
 

Front End Development is a trending job, engaging, well paid and full of challenges and wonders. 

This course will teach you the skills to kick-start a career in Front End Development, assuming no previous knowledge of any of the topics presented. 

NOTE: a basic knowledge of how to use your computer and run programs is assumed.

This course is all about helping you changing your career path (or creating a new one) and acquire the necessary skills to jump into the job market as soon as possible. 

Are you tired of courses teaching you skills that you cannot easily convert into a salary ? If so, this is the course for you. 

Front End Development is an area of Web Development that includes all of the skills required to create the visual and interactive part of a Website. It's a complex mix of skills and technologies and one of the most fast growing and well paid IT sectors of the moment. 

A Front End Developer is the link between the graphic designer, responsible for creating the visual design of a Web Application and the Backend Developer responsible for creating the computational logic behind the application. The Front End Developer brings the application to life creating rich, compelling experiences and allowing the user to interact with the data behind the application. 

This comprehensive course is aimed at students with no previous experience with Web Development or programming at all;
 

The course was recorded on a Mac OSX machine; You can still benefit from this course if you're using Windows but you are required to have basic knowledge on how to use the Windows Explorer and create folders and files with it. You can easily avoid using the Windows command prompt (in the very rare videos that use the Terminal) and instead do what the video shows just using your WIndows Explorer (it's mostly creating folders and files).

- What will I learn taking this course?

We'll touch on all the foundational topics that form the toolbelt of a professional Front End Developer: 

  • Semantic HTML

  • CSS

  • Responsive Web Development

  • Javascript, Ajax and a dash of jQuery

  • Backbone.js!

  • The art of Unit Testing (brownie points during an Interview!)

We'll learn by doing, building projects and adding functionalities over time, as our knowledge expands. 

- What will I get from this course?

By the end of the course, you'll have all the tools and practical knowledge necessary to build visually rich Single page Web applications, try your luck with job interviews and kick-start your career as a Front End Developer!
