Description

What you’ll learn

  • Set up an AWS server, from start to finish
  • Deploy applications to that server and see them on the web
  • Simple web server configurations (Apache, NGINX, etc.)
  • Examples: React/Express, Flaskm Rails (Puma), front-end
  • Installing packages on an Ubuntu cloud server

I’ve been a code school instructor for the last several years and I see a ton of awesome going on right now in the teaching/development world. Code-schools, sites dedicated to teaching like Udemy, free, online tools like codeacedemy and youtube, etc. Through all these different mediums available anyone can learn… a convenience store manager, a housewife, a nerdy high schooler, or a bro-grammer; without any experience or a 4-year commitment to college, anyone can learn how to code and before you know it you’ve made something awesome. The problem I’m seeing in this phase, in my students and elsewhere, is that the no one’s getting all the way there. Setting up a development environment and building a project is 95+% of the process for a beginner and that’s happening, but everyone is focusing on just that part because it’s the main part. Unfortunately no one ever gets you the last 5% of the journey. Actually getting your code out on the web is a very overlooked thing.

Yes, there are plenty of tools on devops, but there needs to be a resource available that’s specific for developers, to teach them to do what they need to do. Junior and mid-level developers don’t need to be proficient in docker, chef, kubernetes, jenkins, cloud foundry and all the tools of AWS/Azure, they just need to be able to maneuver around a server to get things done. That is what I aim to accomplish in this course. 

I will walk you through the process of setting up an AWS account, launching an Ubuntu server, and putting up a variety of apps on that server. We will also connect your server to a domain (you will need to purchase), we will talk about web servers and how they work, what EC2 is, all in simple terms so that you can get to a point where you could do it again. You won’t be a ninja devop, but you will have a basic understanding of how to connect to and use AWS and Ubuntu and get your code into production.

Current sections: 

  • Front-end

  • React & Node/Express on Apache

  • Rails via Puna on NGINX 

  • Python & Flask via WSGI and Apache

In progress:

  • Java/Spring App in a Docker Container (made with Intellij and Maven)

  • Word Press

If you would like to make a request, please send me a message and I will do my best to accommodate.

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone who has a project they have made and wants to learn how to get it online (for Free!) with AWS
  • Code school students/graduates
  • New developers
  • Jr or Mid-level devs who have little/no experience doing a manual deploy

Course content

  1. Donny Phan

    Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum

  2. Madhav raj Verma

    Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

  3. Sachin Gupta

    I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.

    Amazing 40 days course.
    Angela is a great teacher.
    The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
    This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.

    Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

  5. Ben K

    Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.

  6. Omid Alikhel

    I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!

  7. Devang Jain

    The course is not updated and most of the solution codes don’t work and there are no video solutions towards the end

  8. Szymon Kozak

    I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.

  9. Begoña Ruiz Diaz

    Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.

  10. Vaibhav Sachdeva

    I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
