COURSES

Django REST Framework Chris Jones & Kenneth Love

You’ve been learning Django and building great things. Suddenly it hits you. How do I take all this data I have and make it available to the world? Look no further than Django Rest Framework (DRF). DRF is a powerful and flexible framework, on top of a framework (Django), for building RESTful Web APIs. Built-in features like the Web-browsable API, authentication policies, robust serialization for your models and excellent documentation make it a great choice for your API needs.

Object-Oriented Programming in Unity Nick Pettit

In Unity, you can approach the architecture of your projects in many different ways. Sometimes game objects belong in the same family of code together, and sometimes they share characteristics but are otherwise unrelated. In this course, we’ll take an existing project and add new functionality using object oriented programming. We’ll learn how to create new types of GameObjects, including destructible props, using clean and reusable code.

UPCOMING

Intents and Broadcast Receivers  Ben Jakuben

Intents allow Android apps to communicate with each other in a standard way, and broadcast receivers enable an app to listen for specific events. In this course, you’ll learn how to utilize both to integrate your apps with other apps and aspects of the Android system.

Spring with Hibernate –  Chris Ramacciotti

Using Hibernate to manage relational data in a Spring web application is not only an extremely powerful and scalable approach but also widely used. In this course, we’ll add a database to an animated GIF library, and discuss some more powerful features of Spring and Thymeleaf, such as HTML forms, file uploading, form validation, and flash messaging.
