Say what you want about their products and business models, but Twitter, Facebook, Netflix, Amazon, and their contemporaries are monuments to web development — living proof of how far the medium has come, and where it’s capable of going in the future. Each site was painstakingly built and honed by hardworking teams of programmers and designers, all of whom drew from their unique toolboxes of languages, libraries, and software to create innovative experiences.
The Ultimate Backend Developer Bundle is a crash course in many of those tools — from C to SQL to Bootstrap to Python. Over its 78 hours of content, it can show would-be developers how to build dynamic websites and apps, manage massive databases, and gain skills sought by rising startups and internet titans alike. Each of the program’s 14 courses is worth nearly $200 on its own, but you can get them all in one complete package for just $49. Here’s a glimpse at what it’ll add to your toolbox if you enroll today.
More than ever, the world relies on data to drive business, commerce, entertainment, and other vital industries. And to parse that data and glean insights from it, those industries use SQL. With this language, anyone from data scientists to marketing analysts can create relational databases, manipulate them, and communicate with them. SQL and its various incarnations are used to manage the massive stores of data gathered by YouTube, Twitter, Wikipedia, and Microsoft, just to name a few.
While it may be old enough to be your grandpa, C still has plenty of life left in it. This general-purpose programming language has roots reaching back to the late sixties but continues to be used successfully in modern operating systems thanks to its ample portability. Many popular programming languages — like Python, Java, C++, etc. — interact with C, lending to its reputation as the lingua franca of web development.
