rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.

VR in Unity Nick Pettit

Virtual reality is the combination of a head-mounted display and some clever software that creates the sensation of being in another place. What was once science fiction has rapidly become one of the most practical avenues to creating immersive entertainment, simulation and training, architectural visualization, and more. In this course, we’ll learn how to setup popular headsets like the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive within the Unity game engine. Then, we’ll create a fun and challenging basketball game with realistic physics and sound that can be played in virtual reality.

Ruby on Rails 5 Basics Jay McGavren

In this course, we’re going to set up a simple blogging app with just a handful of Rails commands. Then, we’ll dive into what we’ve created and help you really understand what’s going on.

CRUD Operations with PHP (September 2016)

In this course, we’ll delve into the full spectrum of database interactions. Whether the application is an e-commerce, or social network site, or even a todo app on your phone, the data needs to change over time. CRUD is an acronym that refers to the four main operations that you’d want to perform on data in a database: Create, Read, Update, Delete.
