(10 customer reviews)




What you’ll learn

  • How to combine several current technologies and frameworks into one multifaceted app
  • The essentials of front- and backend development, microservices, messaging and more
  • Each step of the development cycle that goes from an idea to a plan to implementation
  • How to implement your own solutions during many coding exercises
  • Without the need to install or configure anything except git and vagrant

Dive into modern application development while you build a web scraping service from scratch. Understand the whole development process that goes from an idea to a plan to the implementation of a multifaceted application.

Get a profound understanding of many important frameworks and tools in one single crash course.

  • Web design using Bootstrap
  • Javascript frontend development using the elegant Knockout.js library
  • REST API design and hypermedia-driven APIs
  • Spring & Java backend development
  • Rapid prototyping with Spring Boot
  • Microservices architecture
  • Messaging with RabbitMQ
  • Web scraping with Python

This class offers a unique distraction-free learning experience that allows you to start coding anytime just by clicking a link

It ships with a virtual machine image that has all requirements installed and a tutoring application that guides you through the course.

Instead of wasting your time with installation or configuration issues that regular courses require, you just open your console and type in “vagrant up”. I developed a tutoring application that guides you through the lectures and manages your source code and exercises. You start coding just by clicking a link and having the tutor taking care of the rest.

Most courses either focus on too much theory without practice or are not more than a guided hacking tutorial ignoring deeper concepts. My class delivers the material in a concise form by teaching just enough essentials so you can start coding on your own.

Why watch hours of videos and forget most of it when I can get the same knowledge in a fraction of the time?

Contents and Overview

This course will take you from an idea to a plan to the complete application. We start with the requirements of our application that we have gathered with our fictive client. We plan the development as we would do in a real life software company.  Then we develop each part of the application. 

  1. We start with the frontend that we implement in two steps. First, we use Bootstrap to layout the website. Second, we make the website interactive using Knockout.js.
  2. Next we move to the backend side and talk about REST API development. Using Spring Boot and Java we demonstrate how to create an API quickly that clients consume. 
  3. In the final part of this course, we add a web scraping service to our application. We gain an understanding of the microservices architecture and learn how to increase modularity by taking advantage of messaging with RabbitMQ. 

The reason I created this class is that I feel there are not enough offers available for developers who want to maximise the time spent on their education. As software developers, we constantly need to learn something new. Our time is precious. That’s why my lectures focus on active coding and teaching what is most important.

As a bonus for my students I personally answer every open question you may have in the forum regarding the course material. My motivation is to help you succeed!

  • Intermediate programmer
  • Anyone interested in developing an application from scratch
  • Anyone who wants to build an application and have a base to build upon

  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.

  4. Vincent Beaudet

    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.
