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 web scraping service 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 crash course.
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?
Contents and Overview
This course will take you from an idea to a plan to the 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.
The reason I created this class is that I feel there are not enough offers available for developers who want to maximise the time spent on their education. As software developers, we constantly need to learn something new. Our time is precious. That's why my lectures focus on active coding and teaching what is most important.
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!
In this lesson we answer the question of how we can make websites interactive and what role Knockout plays.
This video explains the meaning of the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) pattern that Knockout follows.
This lesson explains how we can bind the view-model to the view.
We are going to turn BookieMarker into a real application by adding the backend. In this lesson, we talk about how we could integrate the front- with the backend and what technologies we are going to choose.
In this lesson we talk about:
What is the Spring framework and Spring Boot? Understanding the difference between dependency management and dependency injection. How to use spring.io’s documentation
During the day I am working as a software architect. In recent years, I'm dedicating most of my free time to my passion of writing and teaching about software craft and learning.
I started teaching because I think that the way we teach and learn programming is still in its infancy and can be vastly improved. The tools we use belong to the past where linear teaching was prevalent.
As an avid learner myself, I know very well how scattered the process of acquiring new skills can be, where we constantly jump between books, videos, StackOverflow, tutorials and so on. Nowadays, the sheer amount of new technologies can be overwhelming.
In my courses I want to encourage tinkering and having fun with coding as I believe this is the most efficient way to advance coding skills.
