Course Description

With "Social Network Web Development", you will learn everything you need to create a social network site.

This course it's structured in 6 chapters, more than 30 video lectures.

The entire course it's based on an social network site example, inspired mainly on pinterest like site, that you'll learn to create from zero. I'm a real fan of the learn-by-project method because it forces you to learn all the concepts applying them with something that you can use and re-use at the end.

Why learn to create a social network site?

The full course has more than 30 video lectures, divided into 6 chapters. Each chapter will give you a new level of knowledge in developing a social network site. We'll start from the basics with XHTML, CSS and Javascript to more advanced and the most popular/requested programming languages nowadays, such as ASP.NET 4.0, jSON, AJAX, jQuery, OOP, WebServices, the MS SQLServer database and the new HTML5+CSS3!

The source code of each chapter will be available for you to download as well.

"Social Network Web Development" will give you a new perspective on how the Internet works and after you completed the course you will be able to create your own websites and apps with the latest technology. Hope you enjoy!

Why Learn How to Create a Social Network Site?

The internet is evolving real fast and so are the platforms. There are some huge social networks where you share a little bit of everything. Those that rocks are just few of them. It's preferable to have a niche social network that's focused in a particular topic. When you learn the content of this course you'll be able to create your own niche social network like a Tattoo Social Network, Scuba Diving Social Network, Mini Cooper Social Network, what ever you like.

Instructor Biography

Leo G., WebCoach | Software Engineer | Web Developer | Web Marketing

My name is Leo and i'm 37, father of 3 beautiful boys. I live in Portugal, more precisely in Madeira Island, the Altantic Pearl (as they call it). My programming passion started when I was 15 and since I never stopped programming, learning all I can. I started working when I was finishing my software engineer university course and fortunately I could apply and learn the stuff that worked in the "real world". After that I've started teaching programming classes and taking all my knowledge to the teens, so they could create beautiful and fully "real world" functional sites.

I become interested also in the wonderfull world of Internet Marketing learning from great mentors and also applying all those learning in the real world with a lot of trial and error. I found that a lot of things works, some depends on the niche and others don't apply to my own style. That's it.
