My name is Jesse, I'm 29 and married to a sweet little Puerto Rican woman.
I was born in Michigan, but I've been living in Central Florida the past 9 years.
I've been programming since I was 12. Beginning with QBasic in school, IRC Scripting at home, and HTML in Netscape Navigator on weekends. In those days I had to "View Source" to figure out how to do anything! I wrote my first website at this age using the GeoCities free websites. I then moved to AngelFire for a while. Remember those days?
When I hit 20, I spent several years freelancing with the skills I picked up from terribly long nights of studying. Freelancing was difficult for me because being a salesman wasn't in my blood, but I enjoyed the coding parts! I primarily used Linux, PHP, MySQL, and CSS. Then jQuery a bit later.
These days I live in the corporate world. I work with a small team of people and I enjoy it. I'm doing all sort of things from building solid back-ends, REST API's, HTML5/JS games, Python Django, and sometimes a bit of monkey work.
I enjoy explaining programming not because I like to talk, but because I find it rewarding to help people along their way. In fact, I found it so rewarding that I created a Youtube channel with hundreds of videos covering programming topics.
I hope you can benefit from my years of learning, I try to present it in a simpler way so you don't wrestle with all the questions I had!
Take your courses with you and learn anytime, anywhere.
Learn and practice real-world skills and achieve your goals.
Learn Codeigniter - the most popular PHP Framework! In this course you will build a complete application in the CodeIgniter Framework from the ground up. You'll learn how the MVC pattern works as I take you step-by-step through everything needed get fluent in CodeIgniter.
Some features in our application will be a personalized dashboard for any user who registers and logs in. We'll have AJAX publishing for all of our Todo Lists and Note's.
You'll understand how to expand upon these features when we are complete.
Here we build an API controller with reasons related to an AJAX application. We then do a little code refactoring and lines of demarcation! Please also download the dashboard_view.php below.
We add the delete ability whilst debugging some of our code.
We implement edit on existing notes and cancelling them.
We are now ready to finish off the TODO styling so people might actually use it! (Revised): I had to manually add the audio at 10 minutes as my mic gave out.
This is a very basic run through of how to take advantage of i18n.
This course isn't a comprehensive covering and a lot of updates have been made to both NetBeans and CodeIgniter since the course was created. I wouldn't recommend it for a novice or anyone with only a few hours of programming under their belt. I'd request a refund if it wasn't past the 30 day mark. Unfortunately though, I didn't start it immediately after my purchase.
You could explain the concepts better. I just wanted to know big picture of twitter bootstrap for example, but you kept on typing and at the end - I didn't grasp any concepts.
After going through this course I have a much better understanding of it.
