Treehouse

Treehouse is a technology learning platform that teaches you how to build apps and websites, and turns your skills into a business. Utilizing a combination of video lessons, quizzes, and other engaging activities, Treehouse will guide you through languages like Objective-C, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, Ruby, and SQL.

Treehouse offers more than 1,000 video lessons created by experts. With the right number of hours put into studying and practice, you will gain enough mastery to create your own site within 6 to 12 months.

Treehouse aims to help students acquire the skills they need to craft their own website or apps, and start a profitable business out of them. It is trusted by more than 260,000 students.

Treehouse’s lessons are delivered by way of more than 1,000 videos. These were created by experts in coding, design, and business, and a bunch of other topics. You can practice what you learn through quizzes and interactive code challenges.

Treehouse offers a wide array of topics: HTML, CSS, Design, JavaScript, Ruby, PHP, WordPress, iOS, Android, Development Tools, Business, Python, Java, Digital Literacy, Game Development, C#, Databases, Virtual Reality, Data Analysis, APIs, Security, and Go.

“Gamification” is used to make lessons engaging and fun. As you go through your studies, you earn badges and points which you can use to unlock additional content and features. You can keep track of your progress through the site, as well as the number of badges you have collected over time.

If you register for free, you will get the chance to try out lessons for the first 7 days. During the process of signing up, you will be asked for your desired subscription plan and your payment details (all major credit cards and PayPal). Once the 7-day period is up, you will automatically start on your paid subscription, although you can cancel anytime during your free trial.

There are two subscription options available: Basic and Pro. The Basic plan is ideal for beginners and provides access to all the video lessons and interactive tools. Basic subscribers also enjoy on-demand learning and the guidance of Treehouse’s very helpful community of students.

The Pro plan offers everything the Basic plan offers, but with a number of bonus perks. The option lets you practice with Treehouse’s Code Challenge Engine and watch talks courtesy of industry leaders. You will also get plenty of additional content and will be able to download videos to your device for offline studies.

Workspaces is a feature unique to Treehouse. It is an online code editor incorporated into the platform’s website. Its main function is to provide an environment where students can practice while they are learning. Because workspaces are built into the site, you can use it anytime through any computer. It eliminates the need to search for, download, and install any code-editing software.

The Treehouse app is available via the Android and iOS stores. Aside from accessing your lessons and activities through the app, you can also practice through the built-in Workspaces tool.

For hobbyists and more

I took up building websites as a hobby and you can’t imagine how much Treehouse has helped me. I knew basic HTML when I started and I wanted to explore what more I can do with coding so I took up CSS. The rest is history. I never would of imagined how I’d be doing without Treehouse.

Good, but could be improved

The videos are good for beginners. That being said, my two suggestions for improvement: - video exercises are often too easy and theoretical. - the project attribution is not top notch Overall Treehouse is a good app that will get you start coding

Treehouse is a great app. Could be a bit cheaper though.

Treehouse makes coding fun - a challenge - and is great for beginners. The interface is sleek. The only drawback is the price, which while reasonable is still material in a student budget

I love the Treehouse way of getting you there

Took the Front-End Dev course, and now have a good understanding of HTML/CSS/JS. The whole experience was smooth and joyful (the badges and points). The community is also super helpful
