Integrating PHP with Databases Alena Holligan

Building a PHP-driven page is the first step in mastering PHP. The true power of PHP shines when you connect it to a data source like an API or a Database. To introduce you to databases, we’ll use an example project — a Personal Media Library application. We’ll refactor this project by replacing an associative array with a database to provide a more robust and scalable tool to store the data in the media library. In the process, you’ll learn how to use PDO — a PHP extension to communicate with a database. You’ll also learn about relational databases including how to search for data across multiple tables, as well as how to add common website features like search forms and pagination.

Generics in Swift 2 – Gabe Nadel

Swift is a powerful, flexible and safe language and those characteristics are all embodied by Generics. Let’s look explore how you can use generics to make your code reusable, elegant and clean.

JavaScript Unit TestingGuil Hernandez

In this course, you’ll use Behavior Driven Development to write unit tests for your functions with the JavaScript testing framework Mocha.js. Writing unit tests will help you improve your code before you even start writing it. You’ll have fewer problems, and better understand the problems you do have.
