great so far
Written by Aditya Agarwal 3 months ago -

I only just started the course – am on chapter 3. At different points in the last 10 years or so I have tried understanding object oriented programing (I had some exposure to sequential programing earlier in life). Each time – I struggled to understand the concepts. For the first time ever I think I am beginning to get a hang of this… thanks!

Ruby is famous for being easy to learn, but most users only scratch the surface of what it can do. While some books and tutorials focus on Ruby’s trendier features, this course reveals the secret inner workings of one of the world’s most popular programming languages, teaching you to write clear, maintainable code.

Rather than bog you down with a lot of theory, this course takes a hands-on approach and focuses on making you productive from day one.

Whether you’re new to programming or just new Ruby, this course is your guide to rapid, real-world software development with this unique and elegant language.

Who uses Ruby?

Ruby is an incredibly powerful and highly scalable object-oriented language. Leading technology companies & startups around the world use Ruby or the Ruby on Rails framework to power their websites & web applications. They include:

  • Amazon
  • Twitter
  • Electronic Arts
  • Yahoo
  • New York Times
  • 37 Signals
  • And many many more…

What’s in this course…

  • 27 video lectures detailing the ten steps to becoming an awesome Rubyist
  • Free eBook The Little Book of Ruby and exclusive discount for The (Big) Book of Ruby
  • Downloadable source codes and sample test files to compliment lectures
  • 5 extra videos detailing Ruby on Rails, Symbols, Recursion, and other challenges

    Mike Biskup asks Dan Murphy of Udemy:

    Why should our users BUY Udemy videos when they can find so much FREE stuff on YouTube/Vimeo etc etc etc…?
    You get what you pay for. These are 5-10hrs of guided tutorial, so at the end of the course you have really learnt something. You just can’t get that off YouTube.

    What is the refund policy on the course?

    What have been 3 of your most popular courses? Why?
    Ruby, iOS and PHP……people want to learn to code and iOS is always popular.

    Will these courses pay for themselves in the long run?
    Like any knowledge it depends on what you do with it. But yes the content in these courses can be used as a starting point into a career in web/app development space

    Can I really make my own Udemy course? How?
    You sure can. Simply go to udemy.com and click the ‘create a course’ button at the top left of the screen and follow you nose =)

    How long do I have access to the course materials?

    You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.

What exactly is Paragon NTFS for Mac OS X?

Click here to get the detailed Pre Sales FAQ…

Paragon NTFS for Mac® OS X is a low-level file system driver specially developed by Paragon Software Group from the ground up. The driver is based on unique Paragon Technology called Universal Files System Driver (UFSD). It provides reliable, fast and full read/write access to Windows NTFS file system under Mac® OS X like native file systems and completely supports Mac® OS X 10.4 Tiger, 10.5 Leopard, 10.6 Snow Leopard and 10.7 Lion with G4, G5 and x86 architectures and all NTFS versions – from Windows NT 3.1 up to Windows 7.

What are some common uses of Paragon NTFS for Mac OS X?
Paragon NTFS for Mac® OS X is intended to open up an effective two-way communication channel between Mac and Windows. There are a number of basic use scenarios:

1. You’re a Boot Camp user (Mac OS X + Windows) who can really appreciate full read/write access to NTFS under Mac
2. You need to transfer data (files over 4GB) from your Mac to a Windows-based computer with an external hard drive. The FAT32 file system well supported by both operating systems cannot be used on that external drive, since it cannot process files over 4 GB
3. You’re not willing to bother with what file system your thumb drive or external hard disk uses. The only thing that matters is a 100% guarantee you’ll get access to them
4. You need to provide unhampered data exchange within mixed corporate environment (Mac and Windows users).

“Mark is truly amazing! I don’t think that I have worked with a more skilled and polished trainer/presenter. His ability to make the difficult seem easy and the complex seem simple is unmatched by anyone else that I have had the opportunity to work with. He is a star among experts and it shows on screen. Another amazing ability the Mark has is his ability to develop courseware. I don’t know if there is anything that Mark can’t do!”

About Mark– The Guy Behind LearnToProgram.tv

Mark Lassoff’s parents frequently claim that he was born to be a programmer. In the mid-eighties, when the neighborhood kids were outside playing kickball and throwing snowballs, Mark was hard at work on his Commodore 64 writing games in the BASIC programming language. Computers and programming continued to be a strong interest in college where Mark majored in Communications and Computer Science. After completing his college career, Mark worked in the software and web development departments at several large corporations.

In 2001, on a whim, while his contemporaries were conquering the dot com world, Mark accepted a position training programmers in a technical training center in Austin, Texas. It was there that Mark fell in love with teaching programming, which has been his passion ever since. Today Mark is a top technical trainer, traveling the country providing training for software and web developers.

Review, Create, Annotate, Sign, Edit PDF Documents

Work towards a paperless office with new PDF Studio 7 Pro. Between mac Preview (free but limited in its PDF annotating functions), and Adobe® Acrobat X Pro® (at almost $500) PDF Studio Pro fills the gap as an affordable yet powerful PDF tool that supports most PDF functions while maintaining full compatibility with the PDF Standard. Enable collaboration – read, annotate, and create documents to share.

(Click on the screenshot above to enlarge)

Christina S., Accountant

“PDF Studio is excellent, it has been very helpful to us this quarter with preparing taxes for clients as we are a Mac only office. Thanks for writing this software.”

  • Review and Annotate PDF Documents: Add graphical, sound, text comments; sticky notes and freehand (pencil) annotations.
  • Text Markups for Editorial Reviewing: Highlight, underline, strike through and caret annotations.

  • Manual Redaction: Permanently remove text and images.

Keith W.

“I must say that I do find the software very useful. In the past, I used to archive my documents as scanned JPEG images. Thanks to PDF Studio, I have converted all my files into a few PDF documents with bookmarks acting as an index. Now I can easily access and navigate through my files”

System Requirements: PDF Studio 7 works on the following Mac OSX versions: Lion Mac OSX 10.7; Snow Leopard Mac OSX 10.6; Leopard Mac OSX 10.5 – Power PC, 64-bit or 32-bit Intel-based; Tiger Mac OSX 10.4.

 

Interview with Qoppa’s Leila Holmann

What’s the most unique, useful feature of your product?
That’s a tough call because PDF Studio supports so many features and customers use it in so many different ways. If I have to choose though, I’ll say adding seacrhable text to a document using OCR. This is because it’s our newly added feature in version 8.

Why did you create this app? or What need were you trying to satisfy?
We believe in going paperless and PDF documents are the number 1 electronic document format. Yet most office suites either don’t support PDF or have very limited functionality. We wanted a PDF software that was affordable and user friendly. Adobe Acrobat is available only in the Pro version on the Mac and costs almost $500. We believe that PDF Studio fills the needs of 99% of customers out there at ¼ of the price and that our app is easier to use and more intuitive.

What is most interesting to you about developing SW for the Mac and/or iOS platforms.
Our application is cross-platform and we have Mac, Windows and Linux customers. But we especially love our Mac users because we find that they are at the same time friendly and demanding. We have improved our application a lot based on Mac users’ feedback.

What features should a prospective buyer look into during a trial of your product?
Review  a document with any type of comments (sticky notes, graphical annotations), markup text with highlights, drag and drop to assemble documents, text content editing to correct text, OCR to add searchable text.

What are some interesting experiences you’ve had creating new versions of your software when OS is upgraded?
I can’t remember any. Usually OS upgrades have been very smooth for us as we’re java based and our application continues to work the same with new OS.

What’s your favorite Mac app out there from another developer? Why?
Eclipse. We’re a developer shop and we use Eclipse to develop our application.

What features would you like to add to your product that at this time seem improbable/impossible?
Text to speech would be a nice enhancement for accessibility but a technical challenge because we are cross-platform. We are adding interactive form creation in coming version 9.

What’s your upgrade policy?
Customers who purchase PDF Studio 8 after December 1st 2013 are entitled to a free upgrade to the upcoming version 9, scheduled for January 2014. All free minor version upgrades 9.xx. When version 10 comes out, existing customers can choose to upgrade at 60% discount or continue with version 9.

What should I ask that I’m forgetting?
Well, one thing that customers may be interested to learn about PDF Studio is how complex it was for us to create such a product. Unlike most other Mac apps out there, we are not using the PDF rendering engine that comes packaged with Mac. We have created our own PDF rendering engine based on the more than 1000 pages of PDF specifications. Rendering was the most challenging part in creating our app. We then added all commenting and editing features which are so useful to customers.
Having our own rendering engine gives us a lot of control and freedom. We are not limited by the quality of the PDF rendering engine on Mac. For this reason we support unique features such as official digital signatures that are the only real way to secure PDF documents.

What are the answers to some common questions people have about your app before they buy?
We have a knowledge base with answers to the most common questions: kbpdfstudio.qoppa.com

Black Jack Pro

Last. . . But certainly not least! Black Jack Pro! This would be great for just about any kind of

logo! It’s not really script but more of a mix of script and a sans-serif. Black Jack Pro is ideal

for headers and graphics. It is an elegant and simple font that every designer should have in
their font repertoire.

Testimonials

Wow!
Boom was exactly the utility that I searched for. The additional volume boost coupled with a fantastic EQ enabled me to finally enjoy movies and podcasts when I travel by air. After touring as a professional sound engineer for years, my hearing wasn’t quite what it used to be. But I only needed to boost the volume of certain frequencies. Boom enables me to do that so I’m not blistering my ears, just getting the dialog above the roar of the engines. The interface is intuitive and simple. The EQ presets are great for quick tone setting. This is a utility that I constantly brag about to my friends. I love it when developers like Global Delight unlock the full potential of my Apple computer.

Must have app!

Boom! That is the right name for this utility: it does exactly what it says, gives a very big boost to the sound output on my MacBook Pro, but what is nice is that it generates a clean, clear, distorsion-free sound. I often like to be a few feet away from my Mac (especially when we use Skype for group live conversations) and Boom has been so helpful. You would think Apple could have included this in the OS! Thanks Globaldelight! p.s.: Boom is a must for the hard of hearing, like me!

A quick easy must have!
This is extremely useful if you are a person who enjoy the sound of what you are visualizing. The controls are very easy to navigate and the UI is simple.
