Chad Darby has done a superb job organizing this course, and has made Spring Framework, MVC, AOP, Hibernate, Security easy to learn and use. I have a bs and ms in CS, have been developing software for 25 years, and have taken many courses over the years at the different companies I've been at and Chad is easily the best instructor I've had.

He's extremely well-organized and knowledgeable, and lays out this course in a step-by-step approach to fully cover the material and make it easy to learn. I highly recommend this course, and Chad as an instructor.

I'm adding to my review following Chad's recent updates to his course to cover Spring Boot, JPA, etc. After finishing the course originally, I found another Spring Boot class, and after working on this other class, I appreciate more what Chad has done here. He's made Spring Boot for CRUD applications with Thymeleaf very easy to follow and learn. I've taken half a dozen other software courses, and while other instructors might be good, Chad is the gold standard here. I can't recommend him highly enough.  - Dave Zeltserman

Compared to other Spring/Hibernate courses 

This course is fully up to date and covers the latest versions of Spring 5 and Hibernate 5. The course also includes new content on Spring Boot, Spring Data JPA, Spring Data REST and Thymeleaf.

Beware of other Udemy Spring/Hibernate courses. Most of them are outdated and use old versions of Spring and Hibernate. Don’t waste your time or money on learning outdated technology.

Also, I create all of the code from scratch in this course. Beware of other courses, those instructors simply copy/paste from their github repo or they use pre-written code. Their approach is not ideal for real-time learning. 

Take my course where I show you how to create all of the code from scratch. You can type the code along with me in the videos, which is the best way to learn.

I am a very responsive instructor and I am available to answer your questions and help you work through any problems.

Finally, all source code is provided with the course along with setup instructions.

The Ultimate Dark Web, Anonymity, Privacy & Security Course

Learn how to access & use the dark net and the clear net privately, anonymously and securely

Created by Zaid Sabih - Ethical Hacker, Computer Scientist & CEO of zSecurity


Students: 30932, Price: $174.99

Students: 30932, Price:  Paid

Welcome to the ultimate dark net, privacy, anonymity and security course. With no prior knowledge required this course will take you from a beginner to advanced in all of these topics; teaching you how to properly and securely discover data and websites on both the dark web and clear web, access hidden (onion) services, communicate privately and anonymously using instant messages and email, manually use end-to-end encryption to protect your privacy and make it impossible to read even if it gets intercepted, sign and verify files, share files anonymously, transfer funds anonymously using crypto currencies such as Bitcoin and Monero and much more! You'll also learn how to do all of this in a secure manner making it very difficult for hackers or other entities to hack you or de-anonymise you, and even if you get hacked these entities won't be able to easily control your system or de-anonymise you.

This course is highly practical but won't neglect the theory, first you'll understand the inner-workings of each topic and each technique covered, then you'll learn how to apply it in real-life scenarios ultimately teaching you how to use the dark net and the clear net in a more private, more anonymouse and more secure manner, so by the end of the course you'll be able to combine the skills you learned and use them in any situation that requires more privacy, more anonymity or more security.

This course covers four main topics, I chose to cover all of these topics in one course because I think it is very difficult to learn one without the others as they are very related, these main topics are:

1. Anonymity - anonymity is a state where your identity is unknown, achieving this on the internet is not easy because of the way it is designed, so in this course you'll learn a number of techniques to improve your anonymity, you'll first learn what the TOR network is, understand how it works and how it can significantly improve our anonymity, then you'll learn how to connect to it using the TOR Browser, using TAILS and using Qubes OS, you'll also learn how configure TOR properly to bypass censorship and connect even if its blocked!

2. Privacy - Using an anonymising network such as TOR is not enough to stay private and anonymous because the operating systems we use (Windows, OS X, Linux) constantly collect data about us, therefore in this course you'll learn how to use two operating systems designed to be more private, more anonymous and more secure; TAILS and Qubes OS, you'll learn how to install these operating systems on a USB stick so you can use them on any computer without affecting the original operating system and without leaving any traces!

There's also a fully section on encryption in which you'll learn how the two main types of encryptions work (symmetric and asymmetric), what is end-to-end encryption and how to use it to encrypt / decrypt and sign / verify data, this allows you to privately communicate and share any sort of data; whether it is simple text, or files such as images, videos...etc without worrying about it being intercepted.

The course also contains a full section on crypto-currencies, because the payment methods we are used to use are not private and not anonymous, so in this section you'll learn about block chains, crypto-currencies is and how they work, and how to anonymously obtain two crypto currencies; Bitcoin and Monero and use them to send / receive funds.

3. Dark Net - This is the portion on the internet that is not indexed by search engines and require special configuration to access. Using anonymising networks and privacy-focused operating systems are 2 steps in the right direction of becoming more private and more anonymouse but unfortunately it is not enough, the services we use everyday are not private and constantly collect data about us, so the the search engines (Google or Bing), the email provers (ex: Gmail, or Yahoo), the instant messaging platforms (Whatsapp or Skype), the file sharing services (Dropbox or Google Drivet) ....etc all of these services are not private, not anonymouse and can be used to track us and de-anonymise us. Therefore in this course I will teach you how to carry out your normal day-to-day tasks in a more private and anonymous manner, so first I'll teach you how to search for websites and content on both the clear net and on the dark net, then I'll tech you how to discover hidden services (onion services) to carry out your normal day-to-day tasks privately and anonymously (such as communicating using emails, or instant messages, file sharing....etc).

4. Security - All of the above will drastically enhance your anonymity and privacy and allow you to access both the dark web and the clear web privately and anonymously, but if you get hacked, the hacker will gain control over your system and therefore will be able to easily bypass whatever anonymity techniques you're using and de-anonymise you, so all of the above is useless without security. Therefore in this course I will teach you how to do all of the above securely, then at the last section of the course I'll show you how to take your security to the next level by dividing your operating system into a number of security domains, these domains are completely isolated and used for different purposes, therefore even if you get hacked only a small portion of your system will be compromised and it would be very difficult for the hacker to compromise the entire system or de-anonymise you.

With this course you'll get 24/7 support, so if you have any questions you can post them in the Q&A section and we'll respond to you within 15 hours.

A virtual private network (VPN) is a network that uses the Internet, to provide remote offices or individual users with secure access to their organization's network.

A lot of people use VPNs but they do not really understand how it all works. It is not good! You NEED to know it, it is your security! Do you remember NSA and all issues around it? Do you want to make sure hackers will not get access to your files? Well... it is time to learn how you can make your connection secure and reliable.

This training is designed for beginners, however I included some more advanced labs as well. I discuss VPN protocols, encryption, hashes, certificates, remote and site to site vpns...

Learn about the advantages of VPN:

  • Improve security for data exchanges
  • Improve productivity
  • Functionality and resources shared from a corporate office
  • If data is intercepted, it will be encrypted and will not be readable to outside hackers

It is time to learn how VPNs really work! There are labs included which will show you how we can apply all these protocols in the real world. Enjoy!

Secure VPS in Ubuntu 18.04 with Letsencrypt Nginx PHP MySQL

Create your virtual private server. Deploy Wordpress, Laravel and all projects you need, with an A+ security rating.

Created by JuanD MeGon - Online instructor, web developer, master & systems engineer


Students: 824, Price: $54.99

Students: 824, Price:  Paid

NOTE!!! This course already has a new edition using Ubuntu 20.04 and much more content. Search for Secure VPS in Ubuntu 20.04: LetsEncrypt, Cloudflare and more

So, you want to publish all those projects on your own server, but do not know where to start? Well, this course is what you need :)

Create and configure your Virtual Private Server (VPS), with a high-security rating, from scratch and step by step:
In this course, you are going to create, configure and deploy your VPS server from scratch, set it correctly, with the adequate security measures and the most recommended mechanisms. Always use secure protocols such as SSH to connect with your VPS and HTTPS to protect your websites and projects. Forget the insecure passwords, so you can establish secure connections with your server with the SSH protocol, without problems and achieve anything you need.

Deploy all your projects with your proper domain, with infinite possibilities, at no additional cost. Keep your own space in the cloud for all your jobs, projects and ideas, deploy all types of projects in the same instance and with the number of domains and sub-domains that you want, without having additional costs.

In the course, you will deploy four different projects using Wordpress and Laravel, each one in a different domain or sub-domain.

During the course is recommended to use DigitalOcean, but you are free to create your VPS with the provider you want or need. You can follow the course using any clean instance of Ubuntu 18.04LTS in your selected VPS provider. Everything will be done from scratch and step by step, without relying on additional services.

Install and deploy a complete system with Linux/Ubuntu 18.04, PHP, Nginx and MySQL or MariaDB; in addition to obtaining security certificates in an automated way through Letsencrypt, all for free at no extra cost for your systems.

Why must you take this course?

  • Because it uses the most recent version of Ubuntu (Ubuntu 18.04) which is a Long Term Support (LTS) version. This version allows you to obtain updates and security patches for at least two years, which means that you can deploy your system in Ubuntu 18.04LTS and you will not have to worry about moving to another version for a long time

  • Because there is not another online course which explains every step at this level of detail

  • Because Letsencrypt is a trend, and you will not find content that teaches you how to use it in the way it is done in this course (the correct and simple way)

  • Because the best standards are used to obtain the highest security rating (A+) in the sites that you ensure following the course

  • Because today, the main browsers are demanding secure HTTPS connections in any online site or service, and by following the course, you can secure all your systems for free using Nginx and Letsencrypt

  • Because you will learn to deploy two of the most popular types of projects in PHP, which are Wordpress and Laravel sites

What will you learn and obtain by following and finishing the course?
At the end of this course, you will be able to deploy your VPS server in a very short time and with great ease, using powerful, innovative and safe tools. You will then have your projects online without additional charges, no matter how many domains, sub-domains or projects you put in your VPS, the cost will remain the same.

At the end of all classes, you will have all your projects under a completely secure server, with HTTPS/TLS connections completely free through Letsencrypt and with an A+ rating in the secured sites.

But... What exactly will you learn?
Here you have everything you can get from this course:

  • Create your own VPS server with Digital Ocean or any provider you choose

  • Have a safe and friendly system with Linux / Ubuntu in its most recent LTS version (Ubuntu 18.04)

  • Deploy an Nginx web server in a few minutes and with the best security settings
