Online Courses in Engineering & Technology in USA. PHP Basics In this course I'll walk you through the basics of the language, ranging from basic statements to conditionals. We'll be creating a simple "Unit Converter" as well as a "Daily Exercise Program". We'll then finish up by combining those programs with HTML to create a personal webpage to demonstrate your skills. What you'll learn Variables Operators Conditionals Comments PHP on the Web Getting to Know PHP PHP is one of the most widely used technologies on the internet today, supporting many large projects such as WordPress, Drupal, Wikipedia and Facebook. A conservative estimate is that 25% of the web is built on PHP. The driving force behind PHP has always been; to solve problems, and make it faster and easier to build web sites. Because of this drive, PHP is a great choice for creating simple yet powerful web sites and applications. Unit Converter PHP has 2 types of number variables: integers, for whole numbers such as 1 though 9, and floats, for fractions such as the cost of 1.99. In this course we'll be creating a simple unit converter which will use these number variables, along with arithmetic operators, to calculate weight and distance conversions. Daily Exercise Program In this section, we'll continue to expand upon the skills you've learned, as we explore more data types and the logic needed to create a "Daily Exercise Program". We'll store each exercise in a STRING variable, then we'll use conditionals to control which exercise is displayed. PHP on the Web In this section, we'll use PHP in combination with HTML to create your first PHP webpage. You'll learn how PHP can reduce busy work and maintenance, allowing us to work faster and be more productive. Finally we'll combine the previous scripts to create a personal webpage to demonstrate your skills. Teacher Alena Holligan After starting out in fine art and moving into graphic design, Alena found her passion for programming over 15 years ago and has never looked back. Alena enjoys community and is excited to introduce people to the wonderful world of PHP and the Portland Tech Community. When not at her computer, Alena enjoys exploring Portland with her friends and family, including her 3 young children. She also enjoys the Symphony, Cooking, Books, Yarn and Yoga. [-]

In this course, you'll learn the fundamental programming concepts and syntax of the JavaScript programming language. What you'll learn What JavaScript is and where it is used Basic programming concepts like variables, data types and conditional statements What functions are and why they're useful How to troubleshoot programming problems The basic syntax of the JavaScript programming language Introducing JavaScript Learn about the most popular scripting language on the planet. The language that drives millions of interactive web sites, powers fast web servers and can even be used to build desktop applications. In this stage, you'll create your first JavaScript program and learn how to troubleshoot your programming mistakes. Storing and Tracking Information with Variables Learn how to use variables to store information that changes during a program, like the score in a game, or a sales total. You'll also learn about different data types in JavaScript like string, numbers and boolean values. Working With Numbers Numbers are everywhere in programming. You use them to track a player's score in a game, to calculate the cost of shipping a product, or just to count the number of times a "Like" button was clicked on a page. In this section of the course, you'll learn how to do basic math in JavaScript. Making Decisions with Conditional Statements Conditional statements let you control the "flow" of your program. They let you run different code based on conditions in your program. Creating Reusable Code with Functions JavaScript functions are a powerful tool that let you create re-usable chunks of code. They make programming faster, easier and less error-prone. They are also one of the most important concepts in JavaScript programming.

How to Make a Website If you’ve never built a website before and you have no coding or design experience, this is the place to start. In this project, we learn how to build a modern portfolio website for desktops, tablets, and mobile devices. We start with basic HTML and CSS syntax. Next, we learn how to build custom web pages with an image gallery and contact page. Finally, we walk through how to share a website live on the web. What you'll learn How to write basic HTML How to style web pages with CSS How to purchase a domain and hosting How to upload files Beginning HTML and CSS In this quick tutorial, we’ll check out an example of the final web project we’re aiming to build. Then, we’ll learn how to code our first HTML element, which will help form the structure of our website. Finally, we’ll finish up by styling our website with some simple CSS. These two languages, HTML and CSS, form the basic building blocks of any web project. HTML First HTML is a special computer language that describes the structure of a document. With HTML, we can build web pages that contain text, images, and many other types of content. First, we’ll get started with a quick history lesson. Then we’ll dig into the latest advancements in HTML by creating a simple page structure. Creating HTML Content When building websites, it's best to write as much of the HTML structure as possible before moving on to CSS. In practice, you'll move back and forth between HTML and CSS, but building most of the structure first will make it an easier process. First we will start by creating the navigation for our site. Then, we can move on to structuring the image gallery and other page content. Finally, we'll finish by including a CSS file into our HTML page. CSS: Cascading Style Sheets CSS is a language that allows us to make designs that are well organized and beautiful. While HTML describes the structure of information, CSS describes how that information should be visually presented. Before we start coding the CSS for our site, we will spend some time learning about the syntax of CSS. Customizing Colors and Fonts Colors in CSS require a special coded format called hexadecimal. We will first learn about hexadecimal numbers and then we can use them in our color values. Then, we’ll learn how to find licensed fonts as well as how to include fonts in a webpage. Styling Web Pages and Navigation The techniques necessary for styling an image gallery as well as horizontal navigation are actually quite similar. First, we will learn how to style a group of images and convert them into rows and columns for our image gallery. Then, we will use a similar CSS technique to create horizontal navigation from an unordered list. Adding Pages to a Website When multiple web pages are linked together, the pages become collectively known as a website. The home page will serve as the template for both our contact page and about page. In both pages, we will learn some new CSS techniques. Responsive Web Design and Testing Modern websites are built with mobile and desktop users in mind. By building our site with fluid percentages (instead of fixed pixels), we’re off to a good start. However, we can add special CSS rules called media queries to further enhance the experience. After adding responsive design, we will test the site on a few devices. Sharing a Website We're finished coding our website and now it's time to deploy it live to the web so that other people can see it. First, we will purchase our domain and hosting. Then, we will use the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) to put our files onto our server. Debugging HTML and CSS Problems When creating websites, problem solving skills are essential. First, we will learn how to access the developer tools to find problems with our code. Then, we will walk through some common HTML and CSS issues and how to fix them quickly.

Online Courses in Engineering & Technology in USA. Ruby on Rails 5 Basics In this course, we're going to set up a simple blogging app with just a handful of Rails commands. Then, we'll dive into what we've created and help you really understand what's going on. We'll show you how to work with models, views, and controllers to quickly add new features to your app. By the end of this course, you'll be ready to create basic web apps in Rails. What you'll learn Creating Rails apps Models Views Controllers Creating an App We'll create a new Rails app, and a simple resource. A resource is something you want users to be able to create, read, update, and delete instances of. With just a couple Rails commands, your site will be ready to run and fully interactive! Handling Requests In this stage, we'll take a closer look at the resource we've created, and show you how Rails handles requests. Using the Rails Console The Rails console is useful when you need to do an operation on many model objects at once, or to look at model attributes that you haven't yet added to your views. We'll show you how to update model objects using the console. Adding a Model Attribute Our app is able to store titles for our posts, but we forgot to add a post body to hold the actual post content. In this stage, we're going to fix that. First, we need to add a column to the database, so that our post model objects can store the value of their body attributes. Then we'll need to update our views to let us show those values. And finally, we'll need to update the controller to allow new body text to be submitted from HTML forms.
