Upcoming events (4+)

Ruby on Rails 'Yelp' clone


This tutorial will cover all the details (resources, tools, languages etc) that are necessary to build a complete and operational Job Searching Website. You will be guided through all the steps and concepts, starting from the basic ones like setting up the right tools and frameworks to the more advanced topics related to the development. And ultimately you will be able to create your own Job listing or searching website without any difficulty.

All companies need software to manage their operation even zoos. Employees management, Animals inventory, planning of feeding we are going to develop this.

This tutorial will cover how to build this kind of application with symfony and PHP. To follow this tutorial you need some requirement listed below.

What are the requirements?

This section will cover requirements of programming language, skills viewers should have to understand and follow this tutorial.

HTML/CSSDatabases driven websitesPHP POO and SQLMVC comprehension (for symfony 3)And the most important is: desire to learnWhat is the target audience?

Learners who want to enhance their knowledge This course will help the students who are doing their final projects

When are the streaming sessions (streaming schedule)?

Weekly 4:30 PM EST New York time on Tuesday and Thursday

Project Start Date: Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Where can I find sources ?

Sources are available on GitHub pkshetlie/ZooManager (https://github.com/pkshetlie/ZooManager) pushed after each session.

Project Overview:For information : one session is about 3 or 4h maybe more if session is not completed, questions are allowed in English and in French, I respond in the question language. Maybe the project must continue after all session to improve the application.

How to create a city builder game


Project introduction

In this tutorial we’ll be creating a playable city builder game with javascript and WebGl.

We will start with some basic game concepts, like rendering a dot, and making it perform a random walk around the screen, moving onto more complex ideas, including several meta heuristic algorithms commonly used to simulate behaviors such as traffic, distribution of wealth among citizens, and their consumption of various resources such as food, water, and power. A few examples of these algorithims are Ant Colony Optimization Algorithms (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ant_colony_optimization_algorithms)

The code its self will only be lightly covered, though if you follow along (or download the source code at the provided link), it will run. More fundamentally I will be explaining the core logical components involved in creating a simulation style game.

I will be writing most parts of the tutorial in a compile to JavaScript language called sibilant (https://sibilant.org/), because this is what I find makes me the most productive. This language sticks to javascript semantics in most places, but with a different syntax. I will frequently be showing the outputted JS to make sure no one gets lost in syntax though.

This being the case, I encourage you to follow along with what ever language you feel most comfortable with, if you want to. here is a link to a list of several popular ones that exist. https://github.com/jashkenas/coffeescript/wiki/list-of-languages-that-compile-to-js

What are the requirements? In order to get the most out of this tutorial, you should have at least:

a basic understanding of JavaScript, HTML, and CSS.

Intermediate to "complete" understanding of at least one programming language, regardless of if that is js or some other.

an intermediate to advanced understanding of Object Oriented Programming,

You know what a method is.

An understanding of the fundementals of Functional programming

You know what it means to "map" somthing from one type to another.

know of the basics of linear algebra

you know what a matrix is, and know the basics operations one can take on a matrix. Willingness and desire to learn

What is the target audience? This stream is for you if:

You like simulation games like SimCity, or Cities:SkylinesYou have an interest in concepts typically associated with the field of AI, such as Neural networks, or Biologically Inspired Algorithms.you like to think of applications separately from the code written to make them run

Creating an Instagram Service in Django


This tutorial will cover everything from A to Z of building the backend of an Instagram-like service. We will start with setting up the environment using Vagrant, Python, Postgres, and Django while I help explain best practices for rapidly prototyping an API centric application. From there we will install the required Django plugins (such as Django Rest Framework), build the views and serializes, and handle user authentication. The next component will be dealing with image uploading, applying filters, and saving the data to a CDN capable location (S3). We’ll wrap up the project by creating all the other API endpoints such as getting profile info, liking, commenting, and following. I hope this tutorial series gives you a great idea of the many complexities that exist when building applications.

Django boilerplate can be found here: https://github.com/tsavecodes/djawesome

Tutorial overview

What are the requirements?

Python + Django
Databases driven websites (we’ll be using Postgres)
Linux (we’ll be hosting on Ubuntu)
I’ll be developing on a Mac, but since we are using Vagrant any OS should do

What is the target audience?

Learners who want to understand Django’s structure for big applications
Learners who want to enhance their knowledge of API best practices
Learners who don’t know how to get started building an application
