Infinite scrolling is a web-design technique that loads content continuously as the user scrolls down the page, eliminating the need for pagination. This technique popular is used on many websites and this course will show you how to build one yourself from scratch. Best of all this course provides a great learning experience on how to develop an API that can return database content into the front end. Prerequisites to this course include working knowledge of jQuery, JavaScript, and PHP. We cover the aspects of the languages needed to create the API endpoint and to query the endpoint for data. One of the best ways to learn to programme is by projects and this project is perfect since it combines the use of multiple technologies within one application so that students get a real-world experience. Source Code is included to get you started quickly. Taught by an instructor with over 18 years of web development experience, ready to help answer any questions you may have.
