Top-Tier Courses

Each course on Tuts+ Premium consists of multi-part screencasts, which teach you a particular tool or technology from the inside-out. We’ve done our best to acquire the best talent available, including Jeremy McPeak, Dan Wellman, Andrew Burgess, Bryan Jones, Rey Bango, Jose Mota, myself (Jeffrey), and many more instructors.

Here’s but a small sampling of our course catalog, all of which is included with your subscription.

Go Portable With jQuery MobileGo Portable With jQuery Mobile

In this course, we’ll review the widgets that come with jQuery Mobile, and how they can be initialized and configured. We’ll focus on the data-attribute method of using the framework, and learn how we can use it without having to write a single line of JavaScript or CSS.

CSS Terminology DecodedCSS Terminology Decoded

CSS is an interesting language. It’s quite easy to learn the basics, but truly mastering it is a much more involved process that can take years – despite what your developer friends may tell you.

Anyone can apply a bit of styling, but do you understand all of the various terminology associated with modern CSS? Concatenation, proprocessors, frameworks, OOCSS, responsive design…the list goes on and on!

Simple SinatraSimple Sinatra

Welcome to “Simple Sinatra.” This course is all about coming to grips with the popular lightweight Ruby web framework, Sinatra. Sinatra stays out of your way by providing a minimal API, that allows you to get up and running with a new web application as quickly as possible.

Agile Design PatternsAgile Design Patterns

Design patterns are an essential part of software development. At some point in every programmer’s career, he or she will have to dig in and learn how to apply these patterns. Even if they may appear scary at first, they are, in fact, much simpler to understand than you might initially think. In this course, you’ll learn what design patterns are, how each of them is defined, what they are used for, and, of course, how to implement them in PHP!

Advanced Backbone Patterns and TechniquesAdvanced Backbone Patterns and Techniques

Backbone is one of the best JavaScript libraries available, but it’s likely that there are some advanced use cases that you haven’t yet considered. In fact, Backbone’s sparse but stalwart set of features might leave you thinking that it just isn’t the right tool for advanced web applications. Nothing could be further from the truth! In this course, continuing on from Connected to the Backbone, we’ll dig into some of the more advanced patterns, as you learn how to wield Backbone with precision.

Test-Driven PHP in ActionTest-Driven PHP in Action

In this course, join Radoslaw Benkel, as he takes you through the ins and outs of using PHP’s most popular test-suite, PHPUnit. Along the way, you’ll of course learn how to install it on your system, how to use the various assertions, how to create mocks, and much more!

Riding Ruby on RailsRiding Ruby on Rails

Been meaning to learn Ruby on Rails, but felt that it was too hard? Well, not anymore. In this course, José Mota will take you through the process of creating dynamic and creative web applications, using Ruby on Rails. Come join us for the ride!

jQuery Plugin Development: Best PracticesjQuery Plugin Development: Best Practices

This course will explain the fundamental aspects of writing great jQuery plugins. Some of the topics we’ll cover include how plugins extend jQuery’s prototype to add new methods to the library, understanding the this object inside a plugin, keeping plugins configurable, theming them, handling events and exposing AJAX options for easier implementation by others. Sound fun?

Programming .NETProgramming .NET

For over ten years, Microsoft’s .NET Framework has been the platform to develop for if you want to target Windows or Windows-based technologies. Getting started with the .NET Framework can be a daunting task, as the .NET Framework class library is pretty darn big. But, thankfully, there are a core set of classes that you can use in any Windows or Web app.

Mac App DevelopmentMac App Development

In this course, Bryan Jones, creator of the immensely popular CodeKit app, will teach you the ins and outs of Mac application development.

This list could go on and on. Even better, we’re releasing more courses each month than ever before! If it’s a skill that you want to learn, chances are, we either offer it on the site, or it’s in development by one of our staff instructors.

It is an attempt to document a consistent approach to site development when using CSS. And really, who isn’t building a site with CSS these days?!

    Beginning in January, 2013, we’ll also be releasing two new entirely free books from Packt Publishing to our members each month.
