I’ve tried to fight it over the years, but there’s no use in denying it anymore. My name’s Andy and I am a web geek.
Since February this year, I’ve worked with Rob at Eco Web Hosting to help him find more time to work with on his Udemy courses. If you’re an Eco Web Hosting customer, you may have seen my name before.
If not, hello!
I didn’t come to The Complete Web Developer Course as a complete beginner to web development.
I’d made a few static HTML sites in my late teens and spent the last couple of years working in the hosting industry, though until now, my focus had been mostly on supporting and maintaining the platforms, rather than development on them.
My last job meant I needed to know how to read PHP to an extent, but that extent was the writing of
<?php phpinfo(); ?> (this creates a diagnostic PHP page that lets you check various limits and settings in PHP).
I’d never developed a project of my own in PHP though.
Rob had always managed Eco Web Hosting through the customer control panel and directly in the back end database, but there’s only so long a business can grow without an admin system to manage all the data.
It was time for a CRM. Here’s what I’ve learnt from my challenges so far.
I’ve been getting a lot of questions about updates, new courses etc. recently so I’ve decided to implement a monthly update to let you guys know what’s been happening with the courses. This month has been pretty busy, so it’s a long one!
I have broken ground on my Complete Android M Developer Course, and will be offering early access shortly after Google IO, when hopefully we’ll find out what Android M will be called!
I’ve started working with a number of top notch instructors on a range of new courses which should reach you guys in a few months. More details will be posted on my blog.
I’ve been updating all three major courses in the last month. Most updates are a response to student requests here – check the Done tab to see what has been fixed, and post any other issues you find in the other tabs to get them fixed.
- The Complete iOS Developer Course – re-recorded section 7 and half of section 8. Also added quizzes to most sections.
- The Complete Apple Watch Developer Course – various editing tweaks and quiz fixes.
- The Complete Web Developer Course – updated some missing content, small changes to Twitter API section.
This month, as well as continuing with fixes, I will be adding quizzes to the web developer course and completing the re-recording of section 8.
I am now able to offer bundle deals on multiple courses, so look out for the first of these coming later this month.
What else would you like to know?
If there is anything else in particular you’d like me to keep you updated about, just post it in the comments below.
This week I was interviewed on the App Masters podcast – I really enjoyed speaking with Steve, and you can hear the whole episode below:
To go with my new Apple Watch Kickstarter, I’ve put together a 16-minute video on how to make an Apple Watch app. We’ll see how to add buttons and labels to your app, and make a simple guessing game similar to the ‘How Many Fingers’ app in my Complete Web Developer Course.
I hope you enjoy making your first Apple Watch app!
Ever since the first iPhone came out when I was 6, I have been fascinated by its capabilities. I just had to get my hands on an iPhone. Of course, back then I was much too young to own an iPhone. Years passed, and on my 11th birthday I got an iPad. I was satisfied for the moment, but as more years passed my friends were all getting their own iPhones, so I just knew I had to get one. My dad refused to buy me one, since our family already owned three iPads, and I had a LG840G which was an extremely rudimentary phone.
Then, I heard about the iPhone 6 coming out in September of 2014 and I had to get it! So I asked my dad if he’d buy me one, and he replied that I had to prove that I deserved one.
